The Barney Charter School Initiative

The mission of the Barney Charter School Initiative (BCSI) is to promote the founding of classical charter schools and excellence in their teaching and operations, to the end that public-school students may be educated in the liberal arts and sciences and receive instruction in the principles of moral character and civic virtue.

Tallahassee Classical School has partnered with BCSI, an outreach of Hillsdale College to assist in creating and implementing the school’s classical academic program, providing curriculum design and teacher training. BCSI also provides guidance on the development of a vibrant school culture through relationships with the leadership of the school, including regular site visits and trainings conducted at Hillsdale.
