The BFC Theology department is one of the first schools in the Archdiocese of Detroit to implement the United States Bishops new curriculum for High School Theology. This framework offers students an opportunity to be “put not only in touch but in communion, in intimacy, with Jesus Christ” (CT, no. 5). Each course builds the foundation for the next required class and students have an opportunity to deepen their understanding of the Catholic faith.

A variety of electives are available for seniors to prepare them for living as a Catholic Christian once they graduate. Additionally, students can apply the values they learned in the classroom with the BFC service program. Required service hours provide students with valuable experiences to treat others with respect, reverence for live, peace, love and justice.
