Apple Pie Day
Apple Pie Day is a beloved BCS tradition and our second largest annual fundraiser. Each year, our school community comes together to assemble thousands - yes, thousands! - of our "famous" Dutch apple pies all on one day. Funds raised go toward reducing tuition costs for every family at BCS.
Apple Pie Day 2022 was a great success!
- It was our 23rd year making delicious apple pies.
- We made a record 4,350 pies in one day!
- Our quickest 100 pies was completed in 11 minutes.
- You donated 279 pies to the Milwaukee Rescue Mission.
- Thanks to your support we raised over $46,000 for BCS.
SAVE THE DATE!
We plan to make 4,000+ of our "famous" BCS Dutch Apple Pies on Friday, October 27. Save the date and watch this space for an order form to reserve your pies!

All About Apple Pie Day
How do we do it?
Wednesday night, many helping hands assemble boxes and set up. On Thursday morning, topping is made and that evening, hundreds of bushels of apples are delivered. By Friday night, hundreds of pounds of sugar, flour, cinnamon and apples are transformed into thousands of the most delicious Dutch apple pies you’ll ever taste!
Who can take part?
We welcome parents, staff, alumni, grandparents and friends of the school to pitch in. High school students, including many BCS alumni, come from all over the area to help (and earn volunteer hours!), adding a welcome surge of youthful enthusiasm. Everyone has a great time on the assembly line renewing acquaintances, peeling, coring, slicing, inspecting, filling, boxing, bagging, hauling, and cleaning.
How can I order pies?
2022 pre-orders are now closed. You can join our wait list by contacting the school office.
How can I help during the event?
Many opportunities for people of all ages are available to make this event a huge success. Online volunteer registration now open! We also welcome donations of food and beverages to feed the hungry volunteers throughout the day.
If you would like to help underwrite the costs of some of the materials needed to make and package the pies, please contact our Apple Pie Day Coordinators.
