About

BP students push themselves to be college-ready from the moment they arrive. We set high expectations and our small supportive environment allows students to work hard to meet them. Our students challenge themselves by taking multiple AP courses, maintaining an 85+ average, and participating in our many extra-curricular activities. BP has pioneered student-led courses, where our students plan and co-lead classes alongside their teachers, and get paid to do it! BP students build lasting personal connections with staff through a four-year advisory program, individualized support classes, and a strong guidance team. We provide intensive individualized college counseling to help each student realize their college dreams. Most importantly, we see each student as an individual, and provide you with choices from the wide variety of classes listed below. From Calculus to Sociology, Mentoring to Photography, at BP your choices are endless, success is mandatory.
