Ok, I'm horribly confused on something and could really use some help on this. I've been told throughout my High School career (I'm a Senior) that Tuba is in C. However, I can't seem to find C fingering charts for them. Instead, I find BB-Flat fingering charts and E-Flat fingering charts.

When looking at at BB-Flat fingering chart I discovered that the fingerings are exactly the same as mine with being under the impression that it's C. Can someone explain this all to me?
