Summer Programs

Welcome to the summer program at BCHS. We offer a diverse array of courses and camps during the summer, not only for our students, but also for others in the community.
Most academic classes are for students entering grades 9 through 12; however, we have specialized classes for those entering grades 6 through 8. Additionally, a series of week-long sports and fine arts camps are available for youth entering grades 4 through 8. All of our courses and camps are run by our very own BCHS faculty and coaches. We are excited about this summer and look forward to seeing you on campus.
