Embrace the Bay Area. 

Through the Bay Area BlendEd Consortium (a collaboration between seven Bay Area independent high schools), you will have access to unique courses that take advantage of the resources of the Bay Area and have the opportunity to learn with students from other Bay Area schools. BlendEd courses take place both online and in-person and cover a wide range of exciting topics such as Social Psychology, Bay Area Cinema & Filmmaking, Gender Studies, Multivariable Calculus, and Applied Al in Python. They combine interactive and individual work and are as rigorous and challenging as upper level Branson electives. Though they do not fulfill graduation requirements, BlendEd courses are UC approved and offer Branson students more opportunities to take responsibility for their own progress and learning.

For more information about BlendEd, check out blendedconsortium.org or contact Branson’s BlendEd Coordinator, Jeff Symonds.
