At BCS, we provide your kindergarten through fifth grader a safe and secure environment where we value and respect our students. We believe your child is created with individual, God-given talents and abilities, and we are privileged to help your child thrive using those gifts. We want her to have a passion for life-long learning.
Our elementary teachers are highly trained and credentialed educators who hold certificates through the Florida Department of Education. Each teacher is committed to practicing Christian values in and outside the classroom and helping your child grow in all areas of his life.
