Notes for Prospective Students
- Our program accommodates both full-time and part-time students.
We support individualized learning, providing the foundations of
academic skills and the freedom for each child to explore in his or
her own creative directions.
- An atmosphere of intimacy and quiet expectation allows children
to absorb from each experience what is significant for them and
pursue their unique interests and passions.
Small class size and
respectful communication methods foster a feeling of security and
positive interactions between students.
Groups of mixed ages provide opportunities for students to
develop close relationships with both adults and children.
At BCS, we create a body-brain compatible learning environment
emphasizing hand-on, experiential learning.
Nature, the outdoors,
and physical activity are essential elements of our curriculum.
Taking children out of the desk, paper-and-pencil world and into
the natural world grounds their learning in concrete experiences
and facilitates long-term retention and creative exploration.
school activities reflect this need for direct, hand-on experience
and for engaging vividly with the world.
We also provide: After school program daily; day camps during
summer and school vacations; homeschool support
