    • Academic Excellence: to educate students to find their passion and develop their gifts and talents to love and to serve God in all aspects of life.

    • Vision: BCS delivers academic excellence from a biblical worldview, in a caring, Christ-centered environment.  By partnering with parents, we help students develop critical thinking skills and a strong foundation to recognize the God given talents and gifts with which they have been blessed so that they may become confident, intentional Christian leaders.
