Bronx Collegiate Academy


Bronx Collegiate Academy, formerly Bronx Expeditionary Learning High School (BELHS), is a small high school in the South Bronx serving a diverse population of students.  Founded seven years ago in partnership with New York City Outward Bound, on July 1st, 2011, we ended our partnership with the organization and became Bronx Collegiate Academy.  The school has demonstrated remarkable growth and improvement over the past three school years, and we believed that it was time to focus our mission on preparing all of our students for college.  

Driven by our core values of Believe, Collaborate, and Achieve, BCA is a vibrant school community that values the identity and contributions of each of our students and staff members.  We believe that by building strong, meaningful relationships with students and with each other, we in turn provide positive, impactful role models for our students.  At Bronx Collegiate Academy, our jobs as educators are not just academic.  While student progress and achievement in classes is clearly a top priority, we aim to produce young people who demonstrate integrity, mutual respectfulness, and an appreciation of themselves, their peers, and their community.
