Parents make many sacrifices of time, talent and treasure to give the gift of Catholic education to their children. It is each family’s willingness to work on school projects that contribute to the success of our schools and promotes a greater sense of community among our parents. Every BCACS student participates in community service projects at some level. We encourage parents to set a positive example through their service to our schools. An annual commitment of twenty-five hours of volunteer service is essential for each school family. You can download your Volunteer Hours Form.
