Our Mission...


is to empower each young woman to be the best version of herself. Through a rigorous college preparatory curriculum, service learning initiatives, and a commitment to cultivating a spirit of ownership within each young woman, BELA students will attend and graduate from college.

We know that educating girls is the best investment that we can make, not just in their futures, but in the future of their families, their communities, and their countries.
— Michelle Obama
