Traditions and Trips

At BUA, we pepper the school year with all kinds of celebrations, commemorations, and diversions. At the beginning of every school year, all ninth and tenth grade students participate in Camp Burgess, an overnight program designed to build confidence, improve communication, and strengthen our community. Other events range from an in-school sleepover, to Fall Festival (bounce house included!), to ski trips (both cross-country and downhill!), to the Classics Declamation Contest, and many more in between. What great things to look forward to!
