About our School
The Brave Center Academy (BCA) was created to provide an individualized learning environment for students that struggle in the traditional high school setting. The goal of the BCA is to provide students the opportunity to achieve academic success and ultimately earn a high school diploma from Mandan Public Schools. Enrollment into the Brave Center Academy begins with an application completed by the student. Applications are then reviewed by administration and entrance is based on a variety of factors. Upon acceptance into the BCA, a planning meeting will be scheduled between administration, student, and parent/guardian of minor students to develop an individual graduation plan. If you would like to know more about the Brave Center Academy, feel free to contact Mr. Just, Principal, at (701) 751-6525 or email A copy of the BCA application is below and can be emailed directly to Mr. Just.
