Reopening for the Fall

At BC Central, 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!

Battle Creek Central High School Career Academies

Career Academies are “schools within a school” tailored to different career interest areas. All ninth graders participate in Freshman Academy, a special learning environment for a smooth high school transition. At the end of ninth grade, all students declare a career-focused pathway, and in 10th grade, begin interest-based and experiential learning for their chosen pathway.
