Melissa Greeting Students

After BFS


Many of our alumni describe their years at BFS as the best! When they reflect on their time here, they describe learning experiences that were both vigorous and fun. Their relationships with teachers and classmates endure over the years, often for a lifetime.

Alumni help with many school-wide events and are frequent visitors to campus. They serve on the School Board and committees while supporting the school with gifts to the Annual Fund, Capital Campaigns, and Endowments.
