Vision BCSC Graduates + Applications Open for 2023 (with THREE class options - including evenings!)
The outstanding community members, parents, grandparents, and friends of Brownsburg Schools above just completed their time in the Vision BCSC program. This group started their class in January 2020 and when the class was paused in March of that year, they remained engaged and returned to finish the class in 2022. We appreciate their participation in this program that gives the community a behind-the-scenes look into our exceptional schools.
