BSM is committed to offering a challenging, college-preparatory academic program. Students are exposed to a solid core curriculum, and can choose from a variety of elective courses in a broad range of subjects. Our faculty provides the very best learning environment and instruction for our students to ensure their success.

The curriculum includes numerous honors courses and 15 Advanced Placement courses (listed at right). Our students consistently score well above average on the ACT and SAT tests, and we consistently applaud National Merit finalists, semifinalists and commended scholars. Our graduates go on to some of the very best colleges and universities in the country.

Recognizing that challenge is unique to each student, we offer academic support to help meet a variety of learning style needs. Learning also extends beyond our campus, with student growth being cultivated through experiences involving service work and cultural trips.

Our 1:1 laptop program reflects our commitment to providing students and teachers with access to information, interactive learning opportunities and specific online resources that enhance teaching and learning. We prepare students for the dynamic and ever-changing world in which they'll study, live and work.
