Director of Admissions

"Robert John Meehan, teacher and author, stated that ‘Every child has a different learning style and pace. Each child is unique, not only capable of learning but capable of succeeding.’ I wholeheartedly believe that students need different ways of learning and BAVEL is the answer for many. BAVEL allows teachers and administrators to get to know their students and what is needed for a student to be successful and that is why I am so thrilled to be a part of this outstanding program and part of your high school experience."

Director of Communication & Assessment

"I have always believed the purpose of education is to prepare individuals for the future. Now, probably more than ever, the education we receive can open the door to endless opportunities. BAVEL provides the door, the door that may not have been ‘opened’ in any other setting. Too often, students experience virtual learning with no one on the other end. With BAVEL, students and parents can rest assured that our staff will help and assist you each step of the way."

Director of Counseling

"I’ve heard many times in my educational career, ‘people don’t care how much you know, until they know how much you care.’ With digital learning expanding at such a rapid rate and the many commercials on television advertising the latest and greatest provider of online courses, you have to wonder how much they really care about the students they are serving. Where is the ‘human touch’ with these big companies? I truly believe that BAVEL provides this for students and families, and I’m excited to be a part of providing the ‘human touch’. "
