As this class rides the Busan wave of high school graduation and dives into the vast ocean of life, we wish they all have an amazing adventure in this next chapter of their lives. Some will go on to be scientists, educators, pianists, and leaders in various fields. Wherever their path leads, we are confident they will continue to make us proud and inspire those around them. 

A Message from College Counselor, Mr. Glenn Saunders:

“Despite being a small class of only 11 students, they are a powerhouse of talent, both academically and beyond. Here are some of the standout achievements of this remarkable group:

  • A classically trained pianist headed to the prestigious Peabody Conservatory at Johns Hopkins.
  • The 7th-ranked short-track speed skater in the nation, who will be attending Columbia University.

Remarkably, 6 out of the 11 students scored over 1500 on the SAT. This extraordinary class earned four acceptances to Ivy League schools, including Brown, Columbia, and Cornell (2). Our graduates are aspiring to be scientists, doctors, dentists, and we even have a student who will proudly serve his country. 

I couldn’t be prouder of this incredible class. I have no doubt they will leave a lasting, positive impact on the world, no matter which path they choose.

Congratulations to the phenomenal class of 2024!” 


A Message from the Principal, Mr. Carl Brenneman:

“This graduating class has been an absolute pleasure to work with, from the start of the year to the last day, we have worked well together. I want to especially acknowledge the co-presidents. Their style of leadership, their active involvement in planning, and their respectful collaboration with me helped make this year smooth. Their class set positive precedents that will pave the way for future classes to enjoy.”

Here’s to the BFS Class of 2024—may your futures be bright, your dreams be big, and your adventures be endless!
