Health & Wellness
Whether we're supporting each other in the classroom, on the field, or simply within our day-to-day, the BCS community is built on kindness and support.
Our community of educators ensure parents are kept up-to-date on their child's progress throughout the year. Parents receive regular communications from our leadership team and are kept up-to-date on the latest news in our monthly parent newsletter The Broadcast.
All staff are available to discuss any questions or concerns our parents might have at all times.
We nurture independence, self-awareness, and physical, mental, and emotional well-being.
Students at BCS have access to a comprehensive suite of support services designed to help them achieve their full academic potential. These services are rooted in the understanding that a student’s academic competency is in constant development. From the first day of school students make use of the supports available to them.
Director of Academics
Students are paired with an advisor in September, 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.
From assistance on your walk home to updates about the safety level on campus to houseparent contacts, the BCS Safety App has a lot to offer. All students are encouraged to download the app, which is also available to parents. Sign into the BCS Portal and learn more about the app in a short video posted on the Resource Board.

During the week, breakfast, lunch, and supper are served in the Ross Hall Dining Hall. With at least two hot items to choose from, a vegetarian option, soups, and the salad bar, our community eats heartily and healthily every day. Students can also visit Doolittle's canteen for sandwiches and other snacks during the day.
On weekends, Ross Hall is open for brunch and dinner. Breakfast on weekends can be taken in residence as all houses offer items such as cereals, bread, bagels, milk, etc. Students can get food delivered to campus through services like Uber Eats and Door Dash and our houses regularly organize trips to local restaurants and house BBQs.

I find there is something special about eating three meals a day with the same people. I believe it creates a special bond between us. It creates a time for us to share our struggles or positive things in our lives. A meal with my friends always puts a smile back on my face.

Our Head of School hosts informal and interactive get-togethers via Zoom for all parents every Friday at 9:00 AM ET. This is a time to share events and stories from the past week, as well as upcoming items and ideas. It also gives our parents the chance to ask questions and bring their ideas and suggestions to the table in a live format.
Missing the Zoom link? Find it in the latest edition of The Broadcast or email Simone Goloven, Director of Communications and Marketing.
