BCIS is situated on two purpose-built campuses less than a mile apart. The main campus houses the Elementary School (Grades 1 to 5) and the Secondary School (Grades 6 to 12), while the Early Childhood Center (ECC) for 2- to 6-year-olds is situated on its own campus. Both campuses have excellent facilities.
