The Arts

The Visual and Performing Arts Department at BCCHS all share the same belief and common vision:
To provide a wide variety of arts courses that offers students a rigorous standards-based curriculum that prepares them for postsecondary university, conservatory, and arts careers in the 21st Century.

A number of our Arts classes are part of CTE pathways, and provide students with Community College Credit.
