Bush Hills AcademyBush Hills Academy

Bush Hills Academy is a K-8 school that serves our local neighborhood. Located adjacent to the BSC campus, Bush Hills Academy offers a challenging academic curriculum, character education opportunities, and after school programs focusing on student development. Our partnership with Bush Hills centers on two main projects: 1) tutoring and mentoring students and 2) organizing Student of the Month celebrations.

  • Tutoring - Volunteers usually tutor a student in reading and math over the course of a semester. Sessions last around an hour and are held one or two times a week. Equally important, volunteers become mentors to the students.

  • Student of the Month - Each month, Bush Hills Academy honors students who have excelled or improved in academics, behavior, and character. Volunteers organize a celebration for these outstanding students by creating certificates, ordering food, assembling goodie bags, and helping recognize the students at the party.

  • Additional Opportunities - Possibilities for expanded service-learning initiatives at Bush Hills Academy include assisting with theatre, music, and art classes.
