    Our Beliefs:

    We believe...

    • a student’s mindset directly impacts his or her ability to succeed.
    • people learn both independently and collaboratively.
    • students learn best when they are engaged in what they are learning and have opportunities to discuss and ask questions.
    • the process of learning and inquiring is as important as the curriculum.
    • struggle is a part of the learning process.
    • activities involving reading and writing do not just happen in ELA (English Language Arts)
    • in reflective practices and may make changes within BCA during the school year to improve the educational experience for our students.

    School Structure

    BCA is a multi-age school that provides students access to a variety of technologies and opportunities to connect learning to the real-world. Students spend more time focusing on interconnected subject matter and skills. Students enrolled in BCA work with the same advisor for four years, fostering supportive relationships that benefit individual growth.

    BCA offers a learning model based on state and local academic standards, integrating student interests, local assets, and available opportunities. The curriculum addresses educational goals through individual and group projects and teacher-led lessons focusing on science and social studies. English language arts (ELA) and math are incorporated within science and social studies; however, math and ELA are taught at each grade level.
