I would be remiss if I did not attribute my most formative educational experiences to BCS. Allowing me to learn and mature at my own pace in an encouraging and intimate environment, BCS gave me the individualized learning that few institutions can offer during such pivotal years.  Nearly a decade-and-a-half removed from my years at BCS, I have been able to effortlessly maintain lifelong friendships with my once fellow classmates – something that has continually enriched my life throughout adulthood. Perhaps most importantly, however, BCS was able to teach me the importance of deferential communication and respectful interaction; understanding the basic tenets of cooperation, respect, and consideration were all incorporated into our day-to-day learning at BCS, aspects of maturity and growth on which many traditional learning schemes do not focus.  Whether through the personalized curriculum, the receptive teachers, the convivial peers, or the fluid-yet-structured approach to education, BCS gave me the opportunity to find autonomy in my own education and, ultimately, provided me essential stepping stones towards my growth into the confident, competent, well-rounded, and diligent adult that I have become today.
