We would like to take a few minutes to inform you of what your child(ren) can look forward to each year of middle school with Battle Creek Public Schools (BCPS) and to show you some exciting specials that we offer.
ADVANCED & ACCELERATED PROGRAM
The Advanced/accelerated/REACH program is dedicated to the discovery and nurturing of talent and exceptional ability in our diverse population. This is accomplished through advanced/accelerated core classes as well as ATYP math and English Language Arts classes through Western Michigan University at Springfield Middle School. Advanced/accelerated students at the high school level may choose from ATYP, honors, Advanced Placement, Math/Science Center, and dual-enrolled college classes through Battle Creek Central High School.
This program was founded in 1994 by world-renowned pediatric neurosurgeon Ben Carson, M.D. and his wife Candy. This non-profit organization was created to inspire children in grades 4-11 to be competitive in science, math, and technology as well as to balance academic achievement with the high esteem our society gives to sports and entertainment.
