Founded in 2003, The Bronx Academy of Letters was founded on the concept that students who can express themselves clearly in writing will achieve more success on any path they choose. The Bronx Academy of Letters has an intense focus on developing strong communication skills across disciplines. In addition to its rigorous, college-preparatory academic program, The Bronx Academy of Letters is committed to promoting flexible, self-motivated learning outside of the classroom. Teachers facilitate a wide variety of extracurricular programs including student council, drama, art, dance, cooking, book club and athletics.
