Why I Chose BC:

I chose to attend Berkeley Carroll because of its familiar, opportunity-fulfilling atmosphere. While touring the school for the first time, everyone was nice to me, and the classes I attended were engaging (I did the marshmallow lab). In high school, seeing what was available to me in the Beta Lab, SRD program, and travel programs were amazing to me and were well worth my long commute.

My BC is...

motivational. I have already talked a lot about the opportunities in BC, but that does not mean much if one does not take them. I would never have thought to join the math club, enter debate tournaments, or run for student government if it wasn't for the supportive community and the school facilitating my care. I have gotten so much from trying these things out, and I love that BC pushes me to do so.
