Branch (Executive Function Coaching)

For all current BASEC Branch students: we are now offering Branch support in a new online format!

Branch is currently running as a Zoom virtual classroom twice a day, once in the morning and once in the afternoon. Students can drop in whenever they need to during these times to check in with Pete, Maddy, and Sara and receive academic support and executive functioning coaching. Please contact our Branch teachers with any questions on this new offering.

BASEC Branch is intentionally designed to meet the needs of our 7th and 8th graders and their families. Branch creates a positive and supportive environment that motivates students to reach academic goals and take ownership of their learning. Modeled on our BASEC @ BHS program, Branch prepares students for the academic demands of Belmont High School through individualized Executive Function (EF) and content support.
