BHS Future Educator Academy Earns Model Academy Recognition!

Congratulations to our Future Educators Academy for earning recognition as a Model Academy from the National Career Academy Coalition.  The intensive two-year preparation process culminated in a site review on April 5, 2017.  Last week, the school and academy received notification that they earned Model Recognition status, the highest rating conferred by NCAC.  Academy lead teacher Nikki Morse says “teaching the Future Educators Academy has been a wonderful experience.  One of the best parts about this year was seeing my students work together to earn our national accreditation.  I am so proud of their dedication to becoming a Model Academy.”

Way to go FEA!
