The Story of Ballington Academy
Founded in 2009, Ballington Academy for the Arts and Sciences was named after one of the founders of Volunteers of America, Ballington Booth. Together with his wife and co-founder, Maud, Ballington Booth mobilized to serve those most in need by placing the community above self.
Ballington Academy for the Arts and Science Charter School shares the legacy of progressivism and social change through community service and educational betterment.
Ballington Academy is a project-based learning environment. We encourage your child to be creative. Our students don’t just sit and memorize lessons, they get to actively apply their knowledge to create, build, discover, and provide real-world applications and solutions.
Our programs are aligned with the Common Core Curriculum and tailored to your child’s individual needs.
Specialized instruction includes:
- A technology lab where students learn computer skills and apply them to project research, literacy, academic assessments and assignments
- Next Generation Science Standards as defined by NASA
Ballington Academy offers a variety of resources students can use to advance their education and supplement what they learn in the classroom. These resources are free and available to all students. We provide continuous support to students so they can stay on track and engage in common-core mathematics and English language arts.
Whether your child needs tutoring help or access to free books, we can provide them with a resource that will help them continue to learn and succeed.
