"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
