The goal of the BARC program is to provide an alternative educational opportunity to students that habitually disrupt the educational process in our regular schools.

The Bulldog Academic Resource Center (BARC) program was also expanded in 2003.  The BARC program began serving students from 3rd grade to 8th grade.  Class sizes were intentionally kept small and a teacher and an assistant were assigned to each room to provide the students with greater one-on-one assistance.  The BARC program has enabled countless younger students to make the academic and behavioral progress needed to be successful in school.
