The Brooklyn High School for Leadership and Community Service is a joint venture between the New York City Department of Education (NYC DOE) and BCS. BHSLCS is a transfer high school for over-age, under-credited youth, ages 16-21. BHSLCS serves 216 students who have either fallen behind their classmates in conventional high school settings, or have previously dropped out. For students, BHSLCS is their last chance to earn a Regents diploma and make a successful transition to post-secondary education or to the workplace.
Our mission is to provide a student-centered, challenging and personalized educational experience that empowers over-aged, under-credited high school students to obtain their high school diploma and become fully participating community members, leaders and lifelong learners. We work with students to provide planning for post-secondary success, either through college or a career.
