This is an extraordinary school. It is small so it feels more like a family. The counselors are wonderful. Students have access to learn a trade or prepare for college. Assistance is available for what your child may need such as tutoring, counseling etc. Resources are in place in case the parents need help with every day necessities such as school supplies, clothes for the child and more. If your child needs to catch up or wants to stay ahead, 8 classes a day are available and online courses as well. The Teachers work hard to ensure the students succeed being available mornings and after school and keep the parents informed of their progress. A great nurturing environment where the student comes first and where young men and young women fill comfortable and can smile on a day to day basis. Nothing beats that.

I have attended BCCPC since I was a freshman. This is a school of choice. Students who attend either want to graduate early, catch up to their present level, or in my case-I just want to attend a school that will help me focus on my classes, and Dual-Credit classes. I'm not into school UIL activities, other than being the President of the ART club, but this school allows me to focus on outside school activities (pursuing my 2nd degree Black Belt in Karate). Each teacher encourages students to succeed and try their absolute best. This is not my home campus, but if it was I would be more proud of this school than what I am now.
Barbara Cardwell Career Preparatory Center in an excellent high school.I have been there since my freshmen year but the best part is that my counselor helped me to graduate early.I am 16 year old and I am classified as a senior because I took online classes and that help me to get more credits and be ahead of everyone else.I love my school and my teacher they are very helpful and if you are planning to graduate early go to they care of your education and your goals.
