Mission Statement 

The mission of BLA is to create a safe, positive environment that fosters intellectual curiosity and a thirst for discovery where students and staff succeed through exceptional programs.” 

We will accomplish our mission by:

  • Providing a world-class education through curriculum that exposes students to diverse cultures with a balance in fine arts, technology, character development and extra-curricular activities.
  • Establishing an engaged school community committed to the lifelong success of students in a global environment.
  • Embracing traditional values as the cornerstone of a distinguished education.

Design: We offer an extended school day and academic year to allow for true mastery rather than cursory coverage of the curriculum.

Curriculum: Our content-rich Paragon curriculum converges high tech with the humanities, combining the rigors of a classical education with the relevance required by contemporary culture. Our interdisciplinary program instills in students a captivating conceptual understanding and chronological picture of history, as well as an awareness of the interrelationships between different domains of knowledge.

Technology: To master true computer literacy, students require hands-on access to computers as a tool for authentic learning. Banning Lewis Academy equips each classroom with a computer for every three children, and provides a laptop for each teacher and administrator.

Assessment: The barometers that gauge Banning Lewis Academy’s success include higher student standardized test scores, marked progress in the quality of performance-based assessments, improved student attendance, and retention as well as enhanced motivation, satisfaction, and morale on the part of students, teachers, and parents.

Colorado Department of Education:

Teachers: Banning Lewis Academy hires, trains, and is committed to retaining star teachers and talented leaders in educational management. All teachers are highly qualified, experienced individuals who have a strong sense of purpose, and a willingness to challenge themselves as lifelong learners, just as they would challenge their students. They compel all students to excel by concentrating on engagement and upholding high standards.

Parents: Because every child needs stability, continuity and a champion who believes in their potential, Banning Lewis Academy works to foster a close connection between home and school. Specifically, Banning Lewis Academy works with parents to improve attendance, assist with homework, and intercede when necessary.
