Brevard Academy Starts Year With Record Enrollment


Brevard Academy: A Challenge Foundation Academy, launched the 2015-16 school year with a record number of students on Wednesday, Aug. 12.

The increase in students has allowed the Academy to add several new teaching positions and classrooms. Additionally, BA-CFA has augmented its solid Core Knowledge curriculum with three new areas of enrichment including Spanish, Technology and Outdoor Education. These new programs will be supplementary to the ongoing Fine Arts and Physical Education programs that already exist.

K-5 students will now have the opportunity to learn Spanish, while middle school students will be offered both Spanish and Latin, which is currently part of the upper grades curriculum. The newly added technology instruction will be taught by former second grade teacher, Kimberly Best. Mrs. Best will rotate into the classrooms, fully equipped with laptops, training students in technology and teaching ways to integrate it into the learning process.

For outdoor education, BA-CFA has formed a partnership with Mountain Roots, Inc., a non-profit organization dedicated to experiential education with a focus on sustainability, leadership, the arts, and community building.

The goal of these new programs is to complement and strengthen the mission of BA:CFA, which is to love learning for its own sake, and form a partnership involving students, teachers, and parents to develop sound moral character, leadership qualities, commitment to the community, along with high academic and intellectual standards.
