Our Approach

Our Approach

Baruch College Campus High School (BCCHS) is dedicated to providing a challenging interdisciplinary liberal arts education for students in grades nine through twelve. Our intensive four-year program asks students to explore the philosophical, ethical, and aesthetic issues of the human experience. We are committed to creating an environment for students to develop high level thinking skills, exceed city and state performance standards and develop civic and social skills which will lead them to become socially conscious, responsible citizens.

As a small school of 500 students and 30 staff, we are focused on building a single community across all students and faculty. Our learning is rooted in college-ready coursework, social justice, and elevating student voice.

Vision Statement:

BCCHS strives to be an inclusive and equitable community. Students discover and explore their interests, collaborate, and grow into creative, confident critical thinkers. We develop empathetic leaders who are equipped to make positive change.
