    ✔ You’ll be required to log-in to your Genius account every school day to look for communications from your teachers. From that point on, the day’s schedule becomes your own.

    ✔ Each course you take will have required check points and you’ll need to learn how to appropriately pace yourself to meet each check-point throughout the semester.

    ✔ Don’t worry, you’re not alone! Your BVA teachers and support team are here to help you all along the way.
