The rigorous Limudei Kodesh curriculum is designed to imbue our students with a love for learning and a commitment to living their lives as Bnos Yisroel and Bnos Chabad. As students learn Chumash and Nach in-depth, they develop the ability to think critically and hone their skills for deeper comprehension of mefarshim. Classes in Chassidus, hashkafa, Tanya, sichos, historia and halacha, impart life-long lessons encouraging students to question so they can understand, internalize and apply that which is being learned.
In addition to the strong emphasis on learning, it is the environment and spirit of Chassidus which shapes our students' future. An active Bnos Chabad, working with a BCA madricha, plans shabbatons, farbrengens and meaningful school activities, with students taking on leadership roles heading the different committees. All the yamei d'pagra are marked with inspirational programs, projects, workshops and speakers. In addition, students have the opportunity to express their creativity through our annual musical production.
A BCA mechaneches is available to speak with the students to help them in their growth as individuals and their journey through high school.
In the secular studies program, students advance through a challenging 4-year sequence in English, Math, History and Science. The life skills acquired enable students to stretch their minds, broaden their horizons and gain confidence in their ability to succeed. Through different modalities of teaching, each student is able to grasp the material, as learning comes to life in the classroom. Extra-curricular classes in art, physical education, personal finance, public speaking/debate and sewing, round out the comprehensive program.

“We are thrilled to send our 9th grade daughter to BCA! It has surpassed all expectations from the wonderful things we heard about the school and staff. We are so happy with the level of education offered and the phenomenal and caring teaching staff and principal. (Both secular and Judaic studies are of the highest caliber.) Our daughter is busy with trips, mivtzoim, Adopt-a-Bubbe, shabbatons, special projects, and production. She is gaining greatly from the wonderful curriculum BCA offers as well and the chassidishe environment.”
— Rabbi Michoel & Miriam Phillips
