Number of Years at BCA: 10 years
Favorite BCA memory:
The BCA Olympic is one of my favorite BCA memories, I remember the crowd going crazy when the students played a game of basketball vs. the staff.
Before I started working at BCA, I was an intern in the Labor and Delivery Department at Metropolitan Hospital, and I was studying to become an obstetrician.
Dear High School Senior,
Congratulations. You have worked hard and vigorously to get to this point in your young lives. This year was supposed to be your “last first” day of high school. You were supposed to return to school, ready to take on your position as a senior, walking a little taller in the hallways because BCA is your home away from home.
Hello and welcome my name is Samantha Blanco, I am the Senior Event Advisor / Coordinator of Student Activities (C.O.S.A.) at Bronx Collegiate Academy. I plan and organize events for the senior class such as your prom, senior trip and graduation ect. Traditionally, I would have arranged a senior breakfast with the 12th grade team on the first week of classes. This year, however, is far from traditional.
Last year's senior class was hit hard and everything was delayed due to the pandemic. My imagination was then put to the test. Together, the seniors and I organized a virtual spiritual week, completed the yearbook, and held a live virtual graduation ceremony.
You are the class of 2021, and while it might not be what you expected, your senior year marks the end of your high school journey, so let's make the best of it. This time of year is exciting for me because I get to help bring your vision to life. Seniors, I'm here to support you. I know it seems impossible but together we can make it work. Let’s make this virtual year memorable.
All the best,
