Big Picture College and Career Academy Mission Statement

  • Big Picture College and Career Academy guides students to explore their personal interests and passions through engaging, authentic, and rigorous experiences to create life-long learners empowered to succeed in their chosen career paths.  

    At Big Picture College and Career Academy, students experience a college-preparatory environment balancing classes, seminars, independent learning, real-world learning through professional internships, and access to college courses.

    Students, parents and a community mentor are active participants in the design and assessment of the student’s personalized learning plan, which starts with the student’s own interests. Learning Plans are framed by independent project-based learning, real-world learning through professional internships, and access to college courses.  

    By staying with the same advisor and a small advisory for all four years, students are supported by a strong culture of high standards, accountability, and support. BPCCA students learn to become problem-solvers, lifelong learners and cooperative members of the community, preparing them for college, careers and beyond.
