Next fall Banks Academy will welcome 6th grade students as it expands to include a Middle School. The ACSI accredited non-denominational private Christian School is located in northeast Birmingham on the campus of Huffman Baptist Church. The administration explains that “As academic excellence is a key pillar in the mission of Banks Academy, getting students earlier in their educational journey will enable the teachers to better prepare our scholars for college and other career opportunities and to be effective leaders.”
Enrollment is now open for 6th grade and 9th-12th grade for the 2023-2024 school year. You may complete an application on the website at www.banksacademy.org. All Banks Academy students receive scholarship help through the Alabama Accountability Act and local donations. The Alabama Accountability Act is a key pillar in providing the financial support to start the middle school.
The school will host its annual Spring Banquet on April 11,2023 to raise additional funds for scholarships and the school’s expansion. Banquet speaker is Coach David Cutcliffe, a Birmingham native who attended, played football and coached at Banks High School. His coaching career continued at the University of Tennessee, Ole’ Miss, and Duke University. Purchase tickets by visiting www.banksacademy.org. †
