Student Life

Getting Involved

Getting involved is an integral part of student life at BGA. We intentionally offer a balanced educational experience that challenges students academically while also providing time and opportunity to explore and pursue their passions outside of the classroom — making each student’s BGA experience uniquely theirs to create. In fact, no two students’ BGA experience is the same. Each student is known and nurtured as an individual, and this extends to their artistic, athletic, co-curricular, and extracurricular endeavors. 



In-class instruction for visual and performing arts begins in kindergarten. Students expound upon those interests during after-school programming, from short courses to private and small group lessons to performance groups and large-scale productions. 

The Arts at BGA

The BGA Athletics Department and BGA Legends Youth Leagues provide kindergarten through 12th grade students with opportunities to play competitive team sports. Students are encouraged to participate in as many athletic activities as they desire and that are practical for the student and the school.

Luke Williams '23 Gives Back with BGA Experiential Education Grant

It was in his Lower School science class that BGA senior Luke Williams discovered his passion and career choice – engineering and robotics. In that class, Williams was given the opportunity to play with a Lego robotics kit, which sparked an interest that stuck with him.

Now, almost a decade later, Williams was able to provide that same opportunity to elementary students in Dickson, Tenn., by donating several sets of Lego robotics kits to Dickson Elementary School, which he purchased using his BGA Experiential Education Grant. The grant is valued at up to $5,000 and awarded to BGA students for study, travel abroad, or to create an enhanced out-of-classroom student experience.
