Everyday, students at BxC work with materials, ask questions, gather information, look for answers, share ideas, and explore their world. Instruction takes place in a workshop setting that includes independent work time along with whole group, small group and individual instruction. The BxC curriculum includes Reading and Writing Workshop, word study, constructivist math, inquiry-based science, project-based social studies, visual and performing arts.
At BxC, students learn to be critical thinkers and problem solvers, working together to improve their world. Children spend time learning about their community. Together, students and teachers plan and carry out community action projects that connect curriculum to the realities of life beyond their classroom. Students learn how to create change and become advocates for themselves and their neighborhoods.

Bronx Community Charter School is a small learning community founded on the principle that children learn best when they are active participants in their own learning. Our students raise questions about the world around them, engage with a wide range of materials, and learn through their interactions with each other and all of the adults in the school community. Children learn to use their minds well, cultivating strong intellectual habits and skills to become self-directed learners with clear passions and ambitions. Teachers know children deeply and develop powerful curriculum to meet the needs and interests of their students. All members of our school community are committed to making thoughtful choices, advancing democratic values, and effecting change in the broader community.
