A BCD education is rooted in classical traditions yet embraces diversity and innovation. Students master core fundamental academic skills in reading, writing, mathematics, history, science, fine arts, Latin and world languages. They are taught to think critically, question bravely, and act responsibly. All of this is accomplished through contemporary, best practice methodology in a supportive learning environment.
Respect Yourself. Respect Others. Take Responsibility for Your Actions.
