What Makes Bitney Prep different?

As a Big Picture Learning School, Bitney fosters these qualities in our students:

– Leadership
– Willingness to take risks
– Initiative
– Sense of social responsibility
– Commitment to service
– Special talents and abilities

College admissions officers tend to favor applicants who demonstrate these traits ~ it’s not just grades
and SAT scores, although Bitney students thrive academically as well.
Bitney Prep is committed to developing well-rounded, thriving, and engaged students who are prepared for college and beyond.
