THE BRYAN ALLEN STEVENSON SCHOOL OF EXCELLENCE

GET PROXIMATE. CREATE OPPORTUNITY. INSPIRE OTHERS.

BASSE is a free public charter school in Sussex County planning to open in fall 2023. We are now recruiting for grades 6-9. As a service-learning secondary school, we will provide meaningful, personalized experiences and leadership opportunities for Delaware students. 

Help us build a stronger future for our children and the Sussex County community.

 

ABOUT US

The Bryan Allen Stevenson School of Excellence is named in honor of Bryan Stevenson, a prolific social justice activist and lawyer from Milton, Delaware. Mr. Stevenson often talks about the notion of proximity in his work.

 

“Proximity is a pathway through which we learn the kind of things we need to know to make healthier communities.”

By “getting proximate,” or closer, to the needs of the community, we can see the problems for what they are and create sustainable solutions. We know the path to a strong and healthy community is complex and requires deep collaboration at every point. 

OUR COMMUNITY

“Knowing what I know about the people who have come before me, and the people who came before them, and what they had to do, it changes my capacity to stay engaged, to stay productive.”
Bryan A. Stevenson

We honor what’s come and create what’s coming.

Raise Your Hand, Sign Your Name

To start our new charter school, we must demonstrate that there’s community support.


If you plan to submit an application for your child(ren) in the fall 2023 school year, or you’re interested in learning more, we ask that you complete a brief form.

 

This helps us measure support for our new school.
