Small group instruction, testing support, and skill remediation are offered. An additional fee is assessed based on the support a student needs. Our program does not accommodate severe or emotional disabilities as we have limited resources and staff.

Approach to addressing and preventing bullying By instructing students about courteous and respectful behaviors and by communicating clearly stated guidelines and consequences, BSBA students know that bullying is not acceptable and taken seriously. We apply the Biblical truths found in several peacemaker programs. During Bible classes, chapels, special programs and throughout every day, students are encouraged to identify and report bullying so that BSBA is a safe place.
