Geo-Bee is a unique academic experience for many reasons.  Geo-Bee requires students to recall information, effectively communicate, collaborate, take risks, challenge themselves during a highly competitive and authentic learning assessment.

The Geo-Bee team at BFA Fairfax is organized every spring.  It is made up of between 4-8 middle schoolers, who meet several times a week after school to prepare for the competition.
