Background and Mission

Bina Cita Utama School (BCU)

BINA CITA UTAMA SCHOOL was first established in 2005 by a group of Subud children residing in Rungan Sari, Palangka Raya. BCU School was and is still the first bilingual school in Palangka Raya even Central Kalimantan. The school runs from Preschool to High School with 150 students. Following YM Bapak’s message to build in Kalimantan and establish a SUBUD school, today we experience how we have touched the young talents of Kalimantan to be the country’s future leaders. Volunteers and friends from all over the world have supported our journey since. In celebration of our 20th Anniversary in 2025, we plan to build our BCU campus on the land behind the Muhamad Subuh Center.
