Sports will vary with the seasons. Families can register for 1 or more 10-week sessions through a personalized link that will be shared soon.

    Something to Build Upon:
    STBU is the only program that offers after care Monday - Friday 2:45 p.m. - 6:00 p.m. All structured activities are included with the base tuition. Throughout the year, there may be an opportunity to add-on some premium activities, such as violin.

    Living the Language (Spanish):
    Living the Language is full immersion language program that offers an enrichment opportunity for students to become fluent in Spanish. LtL is a supplement to the Spanish classes that students take throughout the school day. Instructors do not speak English in class, thereby enforcing students to engage in various activities using Spanish as their main language!  The World Language program at BCS aims to prepare students to be eligible to earn the Seal of Biliteracy. 

    Youth Development Systems, Inc (Chess):
    Youth Development Systems, Inc. (YDS) is a supplemental education company dedicated to improving critical thinking skills. It offers an online chess training system that is called the Fun with Chess Learning System™. With our strong commitment in helping students become the best version of themselves in a remote online learning environment, we have designed Fun with Chess Learning System™ to support a single independent student or a large school district which can also be incorporated as part of regular curriculum or an after school program. To achieve an all-inclusive program, we have designed an option for teaching students with ADHD and other learning disabilities.

    The People's Music School (Music Theory & Community Band):
    The People’s Music School envisions a society where all children have access to the unique social, emotional, intellectual benefits achieved through musical excellence. We believe music is transformative and empowers the lives of youth, families and communities. Led by professionally-trained faculty, students receive intensive music education for on average nine hours each week in our four core areas of music instruction: music theory, group instruction, individual instruction, and performance ensembles. We are 100% free, 100% underserved, over 90% of color with a 100% high school graduation and college attendance rate. Learn more about how we transform and empower lives through music education.
