Student Resources & Support

BSEC supports its students by meeting them where they are at.

We help them find the resources they need to learn the things they want to learn in a way that works for them.

BSEC provides opportunities for students to get support for their mental, emotional, physical and spiritual wellbeing. We care about more than just studying and homework – we believe that removing a student’s barriers to learning will make learning more accessible. At BSEC, support looks like:
  • maintaining mental and physical health
  • making sure students can get to school
  • helping with housing, legal and job opportunities
  • modifying teaching methods as needed
  • being a safe space for 2SLGBTQIA+
  • providing opportunities for Indigenous cultural and spiritual connection
