Burlington County Alternative School, located on the Mt. Laurel campus of Burlington
County College in the Briggs Road Center, is a proficiency-based program for students who
have experienced difficulty achieving their potential at their traditional high school and middle school.
Students at BCAS meet and exceed state and local graduation requirements through highly
individualized programs provided by state certified teachers and/or college
instructors. Instruction encourages experiential learning and student-driven projects. Credits
are awarded as proficiencies are demonstrated, rather than on the basis of performing
satisfactorily over an arbitrary period of time. In addition to the academic component,
students are provided opportunities for individual and group counseling, as well as vocational
training and counseling.
