Where are our
graduates now?
BMC is a lot of work,
but we definitely
have our share of fun…
A Few of
Our Philosophies…
Sometimes the less traveled path is the best road to success.
With freedom comes responsibility.
BMC means family.
Fun is good.
Parents and students must decide if BMC is an appropriate academic setting.
Students must submit an application and two recommendations by deadline (12/1/17).
Each student’s transcript along with his/her discipline and attendance record will be reviewed as a part of the application process.

Burke Middle College?
