                                                                           Registration for 2016-2017: 
BCA registration for the 2016-2017 school year is currently underway.  Mrs. Torres sent the home school families an email on February 23rd with details on how to register for the upcoming school year.  Prayerfully consider what is best for your family in terms of accountability for the upcoming school year.  We appreciate each of you and the effort you put forth on a daily basis to educate with excellence.  The home school staff work to serve your family by providing support, encouragement, and guidance as needed. God has a plan for each of us.

Scholastic Book Fair:  You may visit the book fair online May 2-18, or come to the BCA Library May 6-12.



MS/HS Homeroom Meetings:  This school year the students will be meeting for "Homeroom" during the first segment of Block A class on a pre-determined FRIDAY.  The Homeroom meeting will offer opportunity to discuss class activities and plan for BCA events.  It is a method for a home school student to join their full-time day classmates.  If a home school student would like to take part in the Homeroom meeting they are welcome to attend.  If your student comes to campus for a Block A class period, they should attend the homeroom meeting and then go to the regularly scheduled class.  More information to follow.

JR./SR Banquet:  A reminder to our 11th and 12th grade students ~ if your student is interested in attending the Jr./Sr. Banquet, Friday, May 6th, they must first return the Special Event Dress Code document (emailed by Mrs. Torres on 4/4) providing their signature noting that they understand the dress code policy for this event.  Tickets are NOW ON SALE in the main office.  Tickets are $25 each or $40 per couple.  Girls must have their dresses approved by Mrs. Burkett before tickets can be purchased.  Guys, if you are bringing a date from another school, you date's dress will need to be approved before purchasing tickets.  Those students bringing dates from another school will need to get a "guest approval form" from the main office.
