For more information about the SSAT or to register online, please visit The SSAT is a test that is used by many independent high schools around the country.

Once we have a completed file, applicants are invited to BCP for a personal interview with the Director of Admissions. During this visit, you will be asked several questions regarding your application and your interest in BCP. Also, this is the perfect time for you to ask questions of us. The interview is informal and relaxed, so there is no reason to be nervous. We just want to get to know you a little better!

For those students who have applied by February 3rd, notification letters are mailed March 18th, in conjunction with the other independent high schools in the Greater Richmond area. BCP will continue to accept applications after February 3rd.
