BCS teachers are energetic, passionate and inspiring people who care deeply about student success. They challenge students appropriately, provide individualized attention and set high standards. The network of support continues outside the classroom with other teachers, advisors, houseparents and staff. Outside of class time, they coach sports, participate in activities, offer extra help and mentor students. Many teachers live right on campus or within walking distance.
Student are paired with an Advisor (faculty or staff), who will be an advocate and supporter throughout the year. They meet in small groups every Thursday morning to talk about current events, social issues, academic challenges or personal growth. The relationship is also academically-oriented – the Advisor will help ensure the student is on the path to success and will communicate with parents as needed. Students are welcome to stop in to see their Advisor any time they wish.
