Brooklyn College Academy is an academically rigorous school that prepares its students for college by providing college classes, and pushing them to reach their potential. It is a relativity small school with a population just over 600. Its small environment allows for close student to teacher relation, giving students the attention and support they may not have been able to receive in a larger environment. Between its various clubs and meditation room, BCA has given its students a space to breathe and express themselves artistically. As juniors and seniors, Brooklyn College Academy students are given the luxury of taking their classes on Brooklyn College campus. There, students like myself were given a glimpse of college life. After experiencing college courses and a college environment, we have been well equipped with the necessary tools to pursue higher education and succeed.
