Surrounded by mountains, rivers, and lakes, BCS is less than two hours east of Montreal. Our small, welcoming community was established in 1836.
We get together every morning for special presentations, performances, and announcements in 'Chapel', our morning assembly.
Each room is shared by two students and includes workspace and storage. On weekends, students take part in a variety of fun activities, including: skiing/snowboarding, movies, go-karting, shopping, dances, sporting events, talent shows, and more.
In science class, students conduct many experiments both inside and outside of the classroom. We offer individualized attention and enrichment opportunities.
With four bands (marching, junior, senior, stage), a choir, and the chance to perform at events throughout the year, music is well-integrated into life at BCS.
All students participate in one of our 21 sport options. BCS athletic facilities include an on-campus indoor hockey rink, two full-size basketball courts, a 40-foot climbing wall, three international squash courts and a fitness centre. Outdoor facilities include six sports fields, three tennis courts, a softball field, and several kilometres of wooded cross-country trails.
Our co-curricular programs focus on leadership, skills development and adventure. Two years ago, students participating in the Ondaatje Endeavour spent two weeks trekking and sea kayaking in Scotland.
The BCS drama program offers students a chance to challenge themselves onstage and behind the scenes. Two major productions take place each year in our state of the art black box theatre.
