*It is important that parents are forthcoming with any information that may affect an admissions decision. * Students who have been reassigned to alternative campuses for behavioral issues will not be considered for enrollment. Children with severe academic, emotional, or disciplinary issues cannot be accepted at this time. * BSA is a small private school with limited resources compared to the public schools and other larger private schools.  BSA will admit students with special educational needs when we believe that we can truly serve and educate. * Parents wishing to enroll a child with special educational needs, must present an official diagnosis, Individual Education Plan used and any Special Education Evaluations concerning the child.  Please bring these to your first meeting with school administration. This information is crucial to determining if BSA can meet the needs of your child while maintaining the safety and educational goals for all students. * Students for whom English is a foreign language will be assessed on an individual basis. BSA does not offer an ESL program, so ESL students may be advised to seek other schools, which may be in the better academic interest of the student.
