ELW, RICH and PRIDE

Core Pillars

At BAL Academy, we are supported by three strong pillars: Excellence, Leadership and Wellness.

  • Excellence: Through research-based curriculum imbued with the best strategies for boys as learners, all students will be expected to challenge themselves and their peers to reach the highest level of intellectual curiosity and critical thinking.
  • Leadership: With leadership, ethical and moral values embedded throughout the school, all students are expected to be courageous and compassionate leaders within their classroom, school and community.
  • Wellness: Students are provided with curriculum, skills, and guidance in social-emotional intelligence, sense of self, health and wellness. They are expected to make responsible choices regarding their social, emotional, and physical health, and the health and well- being of the school community.

Core Values

At BAL Academy, we encourage our student to become R.I.C.H... in character!  As the Boys Academic Leadership Academy, we are rich with respect, integrity, courage and humility.

  • Respect - We respect ourselves, our families, our community and our world.
  • Integrity - We have integrity in our thoughts, words and actions.
  • Courage - We have courage when faced with adversity, challenges and opportunities.
  • Humility - We have humility in our pursuits, struggles and triumphs.

At BAL Academy, we are Brothers, we are Scholars, we are R.I.C.H!

CORE Academic Expectations

At BAL Academy, our students are expected to have P.R.I.D.E. in their academic work.  At the Boys Academic Leadership Academy, students' academic work have P.R.I.D.E. with precision of expression, relevance, innovation, democracy and evidence.

  • Precision of Expression - The ability to explain, describe and show content standards and conventions in an exact and careful manner.
  • Relevance - The ability to understand meanings and connections between subjects in the classroom to themselves and the world around. The ability to ask “why does this matter?”
  • Innovation - The ability to look at and/or create new ways of expressing or thinking about concepts.
  • Democracy - The ability to use a clear voice and communicate strong choices, and consider alternative perspectives and viewpoints.
  • Evidence - The ability to support or provide proof for an argument, thesis, solution, or point of view.

P.R.I.D.E. is our overarching approach to project-based learning and performance assessment.
