How is BCA different than Homeschooling?
 

  • BCA is considered a public school so there is annual standardized testing to ensure your child is on track
     

  • BCA offers an allotment to go towards curriculum and other learning resources
     

  • Homeschooling is a style of instruction, but also a legal term, meaning parents take full responsibility for their child's education. BCA is considered a remote learning public school and offers partnership and guidance with a licensed teacher.

How is BCA different from Virtual School?
 

  • BCA is considered a remote learning public school NOT a virtual public school so the 3% rule does NOT apply to BCA. You can always enroll with us!
     

  • Although BCA is a remote learning program, we offer both in-person and virtual cohort options
