Who We Are:
BSLC was started in 2014 by George Popham with a simple thought – “The way we teach kids in many public schools just isn’t working. I think there’s a better way”. George had been teaching in public schools for many years and he could see that kids were learning to memorize, follow rules, take tests and complete homework, and though there were likely some skills that they might take with them into adulthood, the most important ones weren’t being taught. They weren’t figuring out how to learn on their own, how to think on their own, or how to manage their own time. Thus BSLC was born and we’ve been encouraging kids to take control of their learning ever since.
Our philosophy is deeply rooted in the belief that children are naturally curious & creative and that they thrive in an environment that fosters those traits, not one that thwarts their imagination. It understands that kids learn differently but surely and that no one size fits all. It puts the emphasis on learning that helps teens be prepared to lead a satisfying life, personally and professionally, in a constantly changing & evolving world rather than educating based on yesterday’s needs.
BSLC is built with a core belief that growing to be a compassionate and responsible individual is just as important as growing academically. You will see BSLC teens actively working towards being meaningful community members.
