Longer Day Options

Longer Day Options

Although most BFA students and their families choose either the Morning Program or the Afternoon Program, for others, one of our Longer Day Options is more appropriate. Students may elect to attend classes either from 8:00 AM – 2:15 PM, or from 10:00 AM – 4:15 PM. The Longer Day Options are particularly suited to younger students, international students, students who are taking a number of AP courses, and students needing to take heavy course loads.

In addition, drama students who wish to stay at school all day on Mondays and Wednesdays, when drama students meet with Dr. Turner for rehearsals and other activities from 3:30-6:30, choose the Longer Day Option for Drama Students.

Please note that students choosing one of our Longer Day Option enrollments are not required to work outside of school hours as part of our Work-Study Program. Because Longer Day Option students are at school during the morning, they are required to adhere to the Morning Program Dress Code, which can be found in the Student Handbook.
