The R.D.W. Howson Enrichment Centre helps equip students with the tools they need to excel in their studies and in life.

The R.D.W. Howson Enrichment Centre (EC) aims to provide comprehensive support to enable all students to reach their full potential. Our Enrichment Centre staff are qualified and strive to mentor and provide daily personalized support to all of our students.

Recognizing that not everyone has the same learning styles or needs, our EC team works with students helping them to set goals, manage their time, rank their priorities and find strategies to help them succeed. The EC team works in collaboration with teachers to help students develop confidence in their own strengths and abilities.

Used by all our students from Form II to students completing the IB Diploma Programme, the EC is a space where students can come to strengthen their organizational and subject area skills or to receive extra help from one of our tutors. 

Our Enrichment Centre offers specialized programs to cater to student needs, academic coaching for student-athletes, private subject-specific tutoring, Supervised Prep sessions, and is responsible for overseeing our students' accommodations and Individual Education Plans (IEPs).

Before students even arrive to BCS, the Enrichment Centre collaborates with the Admissions Team to review all individualized learning plans and psychological assessments to formulate learning strategies for incoming students and ensure that they have the resources they need to find success in the class. 

No cause is more important than the education of our future generations.
