BCLA is a 7-12 alternative school setting that serves all secondary Bedford County Schools. Students attending BCLA:

are referred by a principal or guidance counselor;

are remanded to BCLA due to a disciplinary action through the Student Discipline Hearing Authority;

are sent from a residential facility to BCLA (temporary placement) with intentions for a full re-integration into the regular school setting after a prescribed amount of time.
