Brooklyn Emerging Leaders Academy (BELA) Charter High School was about to graduate their founding class of outstanding women. With that big news, it was the perfect time to let the world in on their accomplishments as well. We stepped in and developed a media relations program and a website to be the center of recruitment, school activities, fundraising, community efforts and show that they are the premiere all girls charter school.
A School Just For Girls in the Heart of Bed-Stuy
BELA is an all-girls high school located in the Bedford-Stuyvesant neighborhood of Brooklyn. They are a community school steeped in the history and culture of our surrounding neighborhood. BELA welcomes young women and their families who are seeking an exceptional, college preparatory educational experience within a joyful, nurturing environment.
On August 28, 2017, they officially opened their doors to welcome BELA’s inaugural freshman class! Sixty girls joined the community that day – pioneering young women up for the challenge of co-creating a school culture based on sisterhood, scholarship, strength and service, and carrying the mission and core values forward for future classes. Today, more than 250 girls across four grades make BELA their second home. This year they celebrate these amazing stewards of BELA. The first graduating class – the Class of 2021!
