Bala Cynwyd Middle School



The purpose of the BC HSA is to further cooperation and understanding between the Bala Cynwyd Middle School and student guardians, to enrich and strengthen quality education for all students, to connect with and work cooperatively with other district schools or organizations, and to connect with and work cooperatively with administration to further the educational aims of the school and district. The BCMS HSA does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, national or ethnic origin, age, sex, or disability.

Our HSA is made up of hard-working parents dedicated to supporting our students, faculty and administration. The Board meets in person or via video conference every second Wednesday of the month at 9:15 a.m. If you're interested in open Board positions, volunteering, or finding out what's happening, contact us at To sign up for the weekly Knightly News, please email
