BIT Customer Service

Our goal is not only to educate your student with the curriculum that anticipates a post-secondary classroom or career, but to facilitate your student’s possible future decisions.  If there is ever a concern or you wish to present/volunteer your own talents, please do not hesitate in contacting us.  We want your student to not only succeed in the BIT Academy; we want him/her to shine!
