Stay tuned for more meetings, updates and open houses in the near future. In the meantime, don’t hesitate to contact me directly with any question you may have at email@example.com. On behalf of our board, teachers and staff, let me thank you for the outpouring of support of BC during this time of transition. It’s an exciting time of positive change for our school, so let’s enjoy the adventure together!
Our school calendar for next year will remain largely unchanged from what we have already published on our website. We will start 3 weeks before Grace Lutheran, which will give us time to settle in before both schools fill out the campus after Labor Day.
Our school day will most likely begin at 7:50AM to allow for a smooth flow of traffic during drop off, since the Grace Pre School (PS) and Elementary School (ES) start at 8:00AM and 8:10AM respectively.
We are carving out the BCHS portions of the campus in productive meetings with Grace, and we will basically be located in the front half of the campus with Grace PS and ES in the back half of the campus. We plan to install several portable buildings to accommodate classroom needs for both schools. We may utilize some space on the church campus if needed, but that has not yet been determined. We are assessing our bussing needs, so please email Shawn Thomas at firstname.lastname@example.org if you desire bussing next year. Please include your address in the email and how many students in your family will need bussing.
A group of students have formed a Student Transition Team to help make our section of the new campus look and feel like Brethren next year. This was under their own initiative, which shows the leadership qualities of our students and their love for BCHS!
The BC Playhouse will be performing the classic musical Godspell March 1st, 2nd, 8th, and 9th! The show begins at 7pm and student tickets will be $10 and adults $15! Tickets can be purchased online! Come support your fellow classmates and enjoy another amazing BC musical.
Duke Summer Sessions
Did you know that Brethren Christian School has a connection with Duke University that allows our students to access their summer educational programs? They have a number of different types of summer programs available, and it may help you earn college credit whether you are a sophomore, junior or senior. Visit the page description and check with Ms. Flippin, our Academic Dean, to see if you are eligible for any of these programs.
Hybrid SAT/ACT Test

BC Blitz and Spiritual Emphasis Week
Our Spiritual Emphasis Week kicks-off with BC Blitz next Monday, February 11th. Students will come to campus at 8am as usual, and after some prayer and instruction, groups of students will travel to locations in the surrounding community to serve and bless the people of our neighborhood. This is our way of living out the gospel message of serving the poor by blessing those around us, and saying "thank you" to the Orange County community. Students will be back on campus to be picked up by their families at 12:30pm. The school bus will leave BC at 12:45pm, so please plan accordingly. Students should bring lunch (or money for lunch), as we conclude the day by eating together. If any parents would like to volunteer, please contact the front office at 714-962-6617. I want to give a special thanks to Mrs. Heffernan for planning a great week of spiritual growth for all of our students.

High School Honor Band
Nineteen of our students have been selected for the ACSI Honor Band! Mr. Montgomery will accompany them to this wonderful growth opportunity today and tomorrow. To have so many students selected from our small school is a prime example of how we perform out of proportion to our size. Kudos to Mr. M and to all of the exceptional musicians selected!
