Unique Programs

BCA is committed to a student’s overall success. It adheres to the Ministry of Ontario guidelines.
Advanced Level Programming in Athletics (ALPA) is a program geared to students who possess a strong commitment and desire to play sports while receiving advanced level training, coaching, and mentoring in the sport of their choice. Strong academics, advanced level of training in athletics, health, and fitness as well as opportunities for leadership training and experience are the core features of the program.

EdVenture Studies (VENTURE) students in this program are exposed to a variety of learning experiences outside the traditional classroom. They engage in the arts, athletics, and ‘science and technology’ through experiential, hands on learning to generate a passion for life experiences. Programming includes, but is not limited to, first aid, horseback riding, racquet sports, photography, team building, orienteering, CPR, and team building exercises.

Curtain Call Singing, acting, choreography, stage performance, costumes, and set design will be the areas of focus. Musical theatre can be one of the most enjoyable forms of expression and we intend to bring out each individuals’ artistic and creative side! Talents will emerge as students learn songs and roles on stage and practice performing. Curtain Call will prepare students for what it would be like to be in an actual musical theatre rehearsal.

Residential Program

Students are housed in great home stay locations, all within a 5 KM radius of campus. Meals, a comfortable room, transportation, extra-curricular activities and “caring staff” make this program outstanding.

University Preparation

BCA is intentional about preparing students for success! Students are counselled at an early age regarding their future university preparations and individualized academic plans.
