Afterschool activities at BHA help students to grow not only as a scholar but also as a person.

CASE taught me how to balance my life and gave me the opportunity to explore and develop my personal interests. For example, Soccer Academy, helped me to balance my social and academic life so that I could release stress and build friendships with students from all grades.

Since I look forward to majoring in Design, being part of the school yearbook design team helped me develop my Adobe skills and build leadership and organization skills that will benefit me throughout my life.

My University Counselor, helped me discover my passions and dreams. She started with the basics: what I was passionate about, and why.

Then she helped me find the university with the best fit. I wouldn't be exaggerating if I told you that she is the one who made me who I am now.
