Founded in 2017, BLE Preference Academy, formerly known as BLE Academy, works to fill in the gaps that traditional education has not been able to fill. We work to be:
A safe and compassionate community is our foundation.
A student's mental and social development and health.
While we focus on academics, we have a balanced understanding of our students' mental and social development.
We encourage critical thinking and build a solid spiritual foundation.
Our student's intellectual, ethical, emotional, social, and physical development is essential.
Every we provide programs, mentorship, and support to all of our student body.
Through opportunities in academics, the arts, athletics, leadership, and citizenship, students define their paths.
BLE Academy launches as a brick n mortar high school.
Due to demand from families in other regions and states, BLE Academy becomes a fully virtual and cloud-based middle and high school. This same year, we launched our Guidance Coach program, spearheaded by Liletta Harlem, Guidance Coach Director. This program's goal is to address the mental and emotional support needs of the student population.
Further expanding our reach, we launched our virtual elementary private school.
With a 500% increase in the student population due to the Covid pandemic, BLE Academy relaunched on the Microsoft Teams platform. Upgrading systems allowed BLE to provide additional cyber security and enhance the virtual learning enviornment.
BLE expanded further by launching our all-Spanish language school. Students in various Latin American regions were now able to benefit from the virtual education that we provided.
We kicked off our sixth school year celebrating five years of education with the Sapphire Gala. The school is currently going through a rebranding and is now known as Preference Academy.
