A VISION FOR FURTHERING A 67-YEAR LEGACY OF ACADEMIC EXCELLENCE
As we further the 67-year legacy of academic excellence at Boyd Buchanan School, there are many plans to enhance the learning experiences of students in the coming years. Looking ahead to what our BBS community of learners need to know, we see an opportunity to develop programs of study that prepare students for a diverse society filled with professions that currently do not exist.
The fields of science, technology, engineering, art, and math (S.T.E.A.M.) will continue to grow and change offering a wide array of careers that we want our students to be prepared to create and conquer with joy, courage, and wisdom.
Classes, where students are building trebuchets, competing in boat races on Buccaneer pond, experimenting in engineering and science labs, and engaging in S.T.E.A.M. activities all, encourage creative and critical thinking in our students.
In order to ensure that BBS graduates are prepared for the selective colleges and universities of today, we must provide pathways of learning that adequately meet the rigorous standards necessary to gain acceptance to colleges and universities across the nation.
To prepare students for this journey, we will also identify and implement the most current and innovative professional development for faculty. In the BBS vision for the future, it is essential that we train students to be expert learners and problem solvers. This begins in elementary school and is embedded in the secondary school culture.
The addition of career pathway programs will further bolster the multitude of options for BBS students at every level. With the strengthening of the academic program alongside the various extracurricular opportunities available to students, Boyd Buchanan will continue to be the rare and special place that God blesses and oversees.
