In addition, we have recorded a voice-over version of that presentation, broken down in modules that can be accessed by clicking on their titles below:

Students and parents are invited to review the above materials, and are recommended to craft a Parent/Student Study Plan together.  A copy of a Study Plan Template can be found be clicking on BRVGS Parent/Student Study Plan
