BSCS is a tuition-free, public charter school, serving students on the Central Coast.  We provide parents the tools and support they need to offer personalized learning programs at home.  Our students have the opportunity to engage in regular enrichment classes in the arts and environmental education.  All interested families are encouraged to read our current year Family Handbook to ensure that parents/guardians and students understand the expectations of personalized learning.

We are now enrolling students in our Monterey Learning Center for the 2017-18 school year! We will be accepting applications through Friday, March 31st at 4:00pm. All applications received by this date will be included in our annual enrollment lottery, which will take place at the Big Sur Charter School on April 7, 2017 at 5:30pm.  Applications received after the deadline will be added to a waitlist by date and time received.

Students benefit when their schools are in the hands of parents, teachers, administrators, and leaders in their own community.
