Be You @ BUA
Our motto is “Learning Without Limits.” In the literal sense, it means that BUA students build on their experience within the Academy building to pursue virtually any academic interest with world-class faculty at a major research university. Interested in Chaotic Dynamical Systems? We’ve got that. Warfare in Antiquity? Modern Japanese Literature? We’ve got those too.
But just as importantly, our students develop the skills and confidence to know that they are capable of extraordinary things. With hard work and perseverance, nothing is beyond their reach. Each and every student at BUA is known, cared for, taught well, and advised thoughtfully. Our students are kind to one another. It makes it easier to be who you are, to follow your dreams and passions, and to decompress and have fun. Oh, yes — we’re a high school. There’s way more to BUA than academics. Read on to learn more about our unique alchemy of rigorous academics and a warm, caring community — we think you’ll be excited by what you see!
