BCS is committed to providing an atmosphere of learning in a Christian environment.  Most students test at least one year above grade level in state achievement tests and most high school graduates go on to college.  Although small, BCS is competitive in sports in the CIF Majestic League (high school) and in the Sharp International Dance Circuit (all ages).  All grades are on one campus - very convenient for families!
