What is the BBCHS Academic Foundation?
The BBCHS Academic Foundation, Ltd., is a nonprofit community organization committed to supporting and enhancing the quality of academic life at BBCHS.  The Foundation, founded in 1996, is structurally and financially self sufficient.  The Foundation holds a 501C3 status with the IRS.  Similar to a music or athletic booster organization, the Foundation is the "cheerleader" for all academic-based programs at Bradley-Bourbonnais Community High School.

We welcome you to look around our site and see the opportunities that we have provided to the District.

What Has The Foundation Accomplished?
Each school year, the Academic Foundation seeks to add academic enhancements to the learning process at Bradley-Bourbonnais Community High School. The Foundation focuses on things that are not in the current school budget.
