Join Our School Family
 
 

Our Home/School Approach to Student Success


As part of our Buncombe County Early College family, all parents are invited to invest in our school. Your participation as a supportive BCEC family will positively influence all of our students and our community.

We have identified a number of ways that you can support our school throughout the year. Whether you can support our school weekly, monthly or a few times each semester, we need you! Please take a moment to complete our Family Partnership Form to indicate how your time and talents may benefit our school community: Family Participation Form (1).html


Keep your contact information up-to-date.

  • We will contact you by e-mail or phone for personal matters.
  • We utilize School Messenger to send out an all-school message. Please make sure your contact information is current in School Messenger and select the methods of contact you prefer: call, email, text, or all alerts. 
  • School Messenger is also utilized for emergency alerts from the school and/or district level. For more information about parent notifications, please select the "Parent" link on the BCS website. 

Be a part of your son's/daughter's team.

  • You are expected to attend orientations, back-to-school meetings, and parent conferences. These meetings have can’t-miss information that will help you support your son/daughter.

Check grades weekly online.

  • You can support your child academically by creating an online account through the Home Base Parent Portal. This allows you and your son/daughter to access grades and attendance 24/7. Come by our main office to pick up information on how to set up your private account. Contact us at 828-232-4123 if you have questions about how to utilize Parent Portal.
