Michel Lafrance, Head of School
Founded in 1836, our stunning 250-acre campus is home to a globally diverse group of engaged and motivated students preparing to impact the world. With challenging programs designed to inspire, motivate, and stretch each student’s mind, body, heart, and soul, BCS is a unique place where young men and women can be themselves, develop respect for others, and learn the true meaning of leadership, character, generosity, and integrity. We are preparing students for a life of continuous curiosity and instilling in them the essence of becoming compassionate and purposeful global citizens.
The past thirteen months have been nothing short of extraordinary. As the COVID-19 pandemic took hold of the world, we took hold of our school and our community. We wanted to ensure that we provided the best possible student experience, effective health and safety measures, proficient communication, and peace of mind to our families. A year later, I am pleased to say that we have succeeded. The BCS community rallied like never before. We are all stronger because of the challenges that we have faced. We are a better school because we bonded together and provided the support needed both personally and collectively. The secret to our success has been the people within our community: our dedicated faculty, staff, and administration, trusting parents, tireless volunteers, supportive alumni, and, of course, our wonderful students.
As we turn our attention to the upcoming 2021-22 school year, we approach it with excitement and anticipation because we are confident that the virus will be further under control and that vaccinations will offer us greater freedoms and flexibility. I can guarantee that, just as we did this year, BCS will provide the best possible education and life experience for all our students.
Our campus is buzzing with activity as the sun has begun to shine, bringing warm spring weather and urging the nature that surrounds us to come alive. We are undertaking improvements to our main entrances, our roads and paths on campus, our forest trails, and our common outdoor spaces. Our recently launched House Sweet Home campaign will see our entire community support significant upgrades and renovations to all of our student houses. It is an exciting time to join BCS and I invite your whole family to share in that excitement as you embark on this journey and begin living the experience of a lifetime.
We look forward to welcoming you to the school and having you enjoy an enhanced campus experience, from the moment you drive through the gates to the moment you glance back at Moulton Hill in your rearview mirror.
I wish you and your family health and happiness.
32nd Head of School
