How is BCA different than Traditional Public School?
BCA offers personalized learning that connects your child to the curriculum that will work best for them!
BCA offers flexibility in your schedule so your kids can pursue their passions
Our mission is to partner with parents and encourage family involvement
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!
