About the School

Bronx Leadership Academy High School’s core purpose is for families, faculty and scholars to be empowered to learn, lead and positively contribute to our school community and society. At BLA, we live and breathe by our Wolfpack Creed: "A family of Wolves together a pack. Each one of them knows to watch the other one's back. When one of them triumphs, it's shared by all. When one of them fails, they all take the fall. If the enemy strikes one, they are all by his/her side. They know that holding together is the key to their pride. Should one of them be hurt the rest take up the slack. For the strength of the pack is each wolf and the strength of each Wolf is the pack."
