Bronx Envision Academy

Overview written by the school: Bronx Envision Academy (BEA) empowers students by emphasizing artistic and academic achievement. At BEA, the learning process in all academic disciplines mirrors the artistic process and we believe students learn best by doing-imagination is the key to success. We promote student success in partnership with teaching artists, arts organizations, and local businesses. Through our partnership with the College Bound Initiative, our students research colleges and tour colleges beginning in ninth grade. Dedicated to providing students with the resources necessary for their success, BEA enables students to master challenging coursework to graduate as creative and analytical thinkers ready for college and beyond.
