How is BCVA Different?

We offer flexibility in learning styles with both synchronous (live, online) courses and asynchronous (self-directed, teacher -supervised) courses at K-8 grade levels. While working from home, our students have the support and guidance of highly certified teachers and a principal as well as their Learning Coach. In addition to academic support, we also have staff dedicated to non-academic support. They help with things like field trips, attendance, technical support, orientation for new families, parent support and learning, and more.
