Every person is an artist! Walk through the hallways at BCA and you’ll find beautiful and intriguing exhibits on every wall. You’ll hear the dulcet tones of choirs practicing and theater kids reciting lines. You’ll get an immediate sense that the arts are an essential part of the educational experience here, not just a box to be checked.
BCA is known for its outstanding arts programs, and we’re proud of this, indeed. Vibrant arts programs help promote creativity, collaboration, self-discipline, and flexibility. They inspire new ways of looking at old problems and bring different dimensions of learning to life.
In addition to providing Music, Theater and Visual Art programs for our K–12 students, we routinely integrate the arts into learning experiences across the disciplines. As educators we know this practice of integration serves to illuminate and explain, motivate and engage, and ultimately deepen learning and understanding.
