Field Trips

 Brighter Choice for Boys believes that field trips are valuable learning experiences.  Each grade level will have multiple field trips throughout the school year to provide scholars with a rich and varying educational experience.  Only scholars who are consistently meeting the school’s behavioral expectations attend field trips as we are proud to represent our school in public and will not allow behaviors that will jeopardize the reputation or safety of our scholars.

Please go to the Field Trips page for the list of scheduled field trips for this school year and to view pictures from the field trips that have occurred.

School Events

Brighter Choice for Boys has multiple school events scheduled throughout the year.  Families are encouraged to participate in the school events as they are intended to build relationships, serve the community, and promote education.  School events are also a wonderful opportunity for parents/guardians to become more involved with the education of their children.
