As educators, our mission is to challenge and support all students, foster academic success, personal responsibility and leadership potential within the scholastic, spiritual and extracurricular spheres of BC High.
Welcome to The Academic Resource Center

Services available through the Academic Resource Center include:

Instruction in organization, time management, study skills, test preparation, etc.
Working one-on-one with National Honor Society Tutors
Create accommodation plans for students with identified learning issues

These services are meant to complement, rather than substitute for, support students are given by their individual teachers and advisers.
