Each morning at Boys Academic Leadership Academy begins a new day of learning, brotherhood, leadership and greater purpose. Students are eager to help their House affiliation win for the day. Students are members of four Houses on the campus of Boys Academic Leadership Academy – Ali, Baldwin, Guevara, and Tyson. BAL Houses were named to commemorate distinguished male figures of color in varied fields of accomplishment – Science, Sports, Social Justice and Liberal Arts.

After Town Hall, lead by Principal Moorer, students ensure that their brothers are in full school uniform, their shirts and ties are ready for the day, and they remind each other not to earn demerits as a house.
Advisory provides students an opportunity to connect with their house leaders and follows town hall to prepare students to a day of learning. Every student receives academic instruction in the four core subjects and all students participate in learning music.
Ali House members (pictured), have decided to kneel and cross their hearts as a sign of respect while they recite Invictus, in the morning ritual.
Students are actively engaged in their classroom learning.

Everyday at BAL is an adventure in Boyhood and an opportunity to powerfully impact the next generation of leaders.
Principal Moorer states “I am committed to ensuring that all students will be equipped with the tools to build a solid foundation of academic excellence rooted in brotherhood and to uphold the BAL Academy creed – Respect, Integrity, Courage, and Humility.”
