Our Vision

At BC STEM, we strive to set our students up for a bright future. We see our students as innovators, and we empower every innovator to ask questions and explore new possibilities. Our students develop critical thinking skills to help them create real solutions to the problems that matter to our community.

Reopening for the Fall

At BC STEM, the health and safety of our students, families and staff members are our top priority as we return to school this fall. BCPS will begin the year with fully-remote schooling for grades 6–12 for the first nine weeks of school. We believe our reopening plan represents the best possible balance between ensuring that your student can continue to learn and minimizing the risk of the spread of COVID-19 in our community.


The Virtual Academy Option

All enrolled students have the option to sign up for an all-virtual school option called the BCPS Virtual Academy. (If your student is new to BCPS, click here to enroll first.)

This option is for families who would prefer that their children participate in school online only for the entire first semester of the 2020-21 school year. If you'd like to opt your student into Virtual Academy for the first semester of the 2020-21 school year, please sign up by Friday, August 14 so that we can make the proper arrangements for the school year!


Apply Now for 2020-21

Thank you to all families that applied to join the BC STEM family for the 2020–21 school year! A lottery selection will be used to fill all available seats, and will be announced soon.

The application period closed on April 10, 2020, but we are still accepting applications for students entering sixth and seventh grade to fill any remaining open seats or to join the waitlist. Applications are not assessment-based and only take a few minutes to complete.
