"Ad Summum" - To the Top 

Mission Statement

Bedford Stuyvesant New Beginnings Charter School (BSNBCS) is based on the premise that all students can reach the highest point of their academic capacity by setting high standards and expectations in all areas of our educational program.  By creating an environment that promotes academic and civic achievements, BSNBCS will give its students the tools to succeed in today’s world.

Our Community

BSNBCS opened its doors in September 2010 to serve families in Community School District 16, which is located in the Bedford-Stuyvesant neighborhood of Brooklyn. We will add a grade each year until 8th grade. BSNBCS takes full advantage of being located in one of New York City's cultural centers.  Bed-Stuy's deep historical richness and community ties will serve as a conduit for our students to serve as invested citizens of the community and the global environment.

Each year students will dedicate at least 25 hours towards community service.  BSNBCS will also seek partnerships with local, regional, national and international organizations to expose our students to the larger world around them.
