Welcome to BILA

The Brooklyn Institute for Liberal Arts is an ideal school for students who want the best academic foundation to prepare them for college. We have challenging interactive classes, and the opportunity for students to succeed in a supportive, friendly, energetic community. Student voice is encouraged and celebrated; students are mentored or mentor others; student leaders are developed. Monthly trips are part of a curriculum that allows students to see, learn about and truly participate in this ever changing world. Students with a love for technology will flourish in this Mac-based iZone school with a variety of electives to suit individual student choice.  

BILA'S Mission 

At the Brooklyn Institute for Liberal Arts we educate and nurture each child to develop his or her fullest potential. Our inquiry-based approach to a rigorous, standards-based liberal arts curriculum and our collaborative approach to our learning environment ensure that our students have the academic knowledge and skills necessary to succeed in college and in their future careers. At the Brooklyn Institute for Liberal Arts, we “Believe, Inquire, Learn and Achieve” together so that our students can fully immerse themselves in 21st century life challenges and successes.

BILA'S Vision

We envision students who actively participate in their learning by questioning their scholarship and the world in which they live, are reflective about their roles in the world, and who, through their endeavors, demonstrate their eagerness to move to the next level of learning; parents who support their children’s learning by asking questions about their rights and roles in their children’s education and are active members of the Brooklyn Institute for Liberal Arts community; teachers who make learning rigorous, creative, and relevant by taking risks with their teaching, are always learning new ways to facilitate learning, and are validating the accomplishments of their students; and a leader whose practice demonstrates her commitment to building a safe, nurturing environment for all.
