About BYS

Students from all four Pickaway County school districts (Circleville, Logan Elm, Teays Valley, and Westfall) who qualify for PCBDD services are eligible to attend. Placement of Board eligible students at BYS is determined by each student’s Individualized Educational Program team.

  • Physical education includes swim lessons at the YMCA, group fitness with the Sports Medicine students from Pickaway Ross, and Dance and movement class with Julie Chafin.
  • High school students have vocational exploration opportunities in many businesses around Circleville.
