Preschool through IB Middle School

Learning Center

The BCD Learning Center was established in 2013 to coordinate resources and support the diverse learning styles of our students. The Learning Center supports teachers in all grades to assess the individual needs of students, to determine effective educational interventions, and to provide differentiation within the classroom. We remain current with appropriate instructional theory, practice, and research, continually seeking innovative and creative approaches to adjust, modify and enrich our curriculum.

The Learning Center supports a variety of pedagogies and grouping strategies, allowing teachers and specialists to individualize goals and tailor instruction for students so that each child may find their excellence at BCD.  Learning Center staff partner closely with teachers, students, and parents to clarify whether a child might need acceleration or remediation in any academic area and later collaborate with all pertinent parties so that each child at BCD may reach their full potential.

The Learning Center is staffed with faculty who have backgrounds in intervention strategies, literacy, special education (gifted and learning disabilities), as well as certifications in particular modalities such as multicultural and bilingual foundations, Orton-Gillingham, Fountas and Pinnell leveled literacy instruction, among others.

Academic Curriculum

BCD academics strive to stay in step with the latest educational research. Our comprehensive reading, writing and math programs help challenge students by spiraling topics, an approach that provides greater opportunity for concept mastery and deeper understanding. From lessons in goal setting to scholastic risk taking to executive processing skills, our highly skilled teachers tailor their instruction to meet each student's specific needs. Furthermore, our dynamic team of learning specialists focuses on the individual, so that all students can discover their own excellence and true academic potential.
