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 a 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 life long learners, as they would challenge their students. They compel all students to excel by concentrating on engaging every child in learning and by holding students to high standards.

Parents: Because every child needs stability, continuity and a champion who believes in his or her human potential, Banning Lewis Academy works to foster a close connection between home and school. Specifically, Banning Lewis Academy works with parents and other adults with positive influence to improve attendance, to assist with homework, and to intercede at the first hint of difficulty.
