Mission and Vision Statements
BELL Academy is a unique learning environment that offers each student an opportunity to find and develop his or her individual profile of gifts and talents. Based on the School-wide Enrichment Model (SEM), developed by Drs. Joseph Renzulli and Sally Reis at the University of Connecticut, the major goal of the school is to provide challenging, in-depth, real-world learning experiences for all students. Our collaborative school culture focuses on the development of talents in all students and provides a broad range of advanced-level enrichment. Instructional technology integrated through all subject areas will ensure students develop the necessary skills to be prepared for the demands of the 21st century. The school culture celebrates individuality, creativity, and diversity to develop creative problem solvers who are successful and believe they can make a difference in the world. As a community of learners, BELL Academy is committed to inspiring a passion for learning and civic responsibility, one student at a time.
Together, we are BELL Strong!
BELL Academy students will graduate having realized their individual profile of gifts and talents, thus fostering their passion for learning. Through the celebration of individual identities and cultures, our students will feel “seen,” therefore benefiting from the emotional safe spaces that foster their civic responsibility and develop their sense of community. Our students will use their experiences with challenging, in-depth, collaborative, real-world learning experiences to be prepared for the demands of the 21st century.
