Shield Parent Group

SHIELD Mission Statement and Purpose

The SHIELD of Buckingham exists to support, expand, and protect the students of Buckingham Collegiate Charter Academy (BCCA).  The expressed purposes of the SHIELD are to solicit funds on behalf of the student body in order to provide them with greater opportunities to learn, grow, and apply the skills they have learned ultimately producing a well- rounded, deeply grounded,  academically strong- minded fellow citizen.  SHIELD's directors will solicit public and private support through educational grants, donations, and other available resources. This is a  representative group that also reviews, advises, and participates in decision making on matters that affect the student, parent, teachers, and school.
