Blake academy believes in giving kids independence to think for themselves, to work out their problems, and to give kids leadership roles. The great thing about Blake Academy is that the students build such great relationships with the excellent teaching staff and administration, that you will see those students returning again and again to visit their old teachers and to give back to Blake by volunteering themselves. Students learn how to be a part of a community.
