Additional Notes

  • If your students plan is to study in a country other than the US, let your student's Guidance Counselor know immediately. BFA offers an American high school diploma, which aligns with US university admissions, but additional pieces need to be considered when planning to study in Canada, Europe, Korea, etc. It is important to make your student's Guidance Counselor aware as soon as possible so that those extra pieces can be accounted for.

  • We begin asking the senior questions in the spring of junior year. That summer between junior and senior years is a key time for conversations and decisions within families as students move towards application season in the fall of senior year!

  • The more you can engage in these conversations at home and help your student be exposed to different careers, the easier some of these decisions may be!
