Tina Lee, Faculty
I have truly seen God work at Boyd Buchanan as a student, a teacher, a parent, and an administrator. Mission-centered and Spirit led. I cannot begin to describe the impact Boyd Buchanan has had on my life and my family. I am proud to be a Buccaneer!
Renee Hood, High School Principal ('87 Alumni)
"The most beneficial part was that I pushed myself to take the AP and accelerated courses. I was very pleased to get to college with 17 credit hours, a whole semester under my belt! Dual enrollment completely paid off!"
Haley Kinser, Class of 2013
"The biggest thing BBS did was teach me study habits. The upper level classes that were offered taught me how to be dedicated to studying and has led me to being successful in college."
Grant Mathis, Alumni c/o 2010
"I was fully equipped with study skills and the ability to lead both inside and out of the classroom. Boyd taught me to expect more from myself and to continually push myself."
Andrew Peace, Alumni c/o 2012
"The teachers cared about us succeeding and doing well, without sacrificing good teaching for good grades. Some teachers taught exactly like professors at Lipscomb. My high school experiences really prepared me for college."
Margaret Rox, Alumni c/o 2012

How do I go about arranging a visit to campus and meeting with an admission counselor?
What is required to receive an admission decision?
The official campus visit, main application, recommendations. For secondary admissions additional information is needed: school transcript, and ISEE Testing results. The steps and deadlines involved in our application process are outlined in the admission packet and on this website, but your child will need your assistance and guidance along the way. Our admission counselors are also available to assist throughout the process.
Should we withdraw our application if our child performs poorly on the entrance exam?
While the entrance exam is important, it is not the only tool used to determine if a child is a good fit for Boyd Buchanan. Grades, teacher recommendations, extracurricular activities, and the personal campus visit are equally important to the admission process. If there are significant concerns about testing, a conversation with the admission director would be advisable.
