Greetings Parents and Guardians,

I would like to welcome you to the Benjamin Banneker Academy for Community and Development, with great expectations, time and dedication, we will explore excellence at the highest point. We welcome you to join us this school year. It truly takes a village to raise a child. Our school community, dedicated teachers & support staff have great expectations for you and your families. Our student centered learning and learning outcomes will prepare your child for community service, internships and college readiness. We are determined to have a great outcome for this school year and look forward to partnering with you. It is imperative that you partner with us in our Parent Teacher Association (BBACD Kinship). We meet monthly, with a rotating schedule that changes month to month to provide flexibility for parents and guardians to attend. Some months, the meetings are in the evening and other months, the meetings are on Saturdays. 

Our school culture is transitioning to a uniform school starting September 8th, 202. We have provided each family with an IDEAL uniform store  2022 price list.  Each student is expected to be appropriately dressed in uniform daily.  Parents can order directly online at  idealuniform.com/BBA and follow the on screen instructions.  Parents and guardians can visit  the store to purchase uniforms: 1816 Flatbush Ave ( corner of Ave K), Brooklyn, NY 11210.   You can also order by phone: 718- 252 5090 ( M-F) 9am -5pm  With extended summer hours from August 1st to September 5th ( Monday – Friday 9am -7:30pm ) If you have any concerns regarding uniforms please call me, I can be reached at 718-797-3702 ext 1030.  I would like to thank you for choosing Benjamin Banneker Academy for your child’s educational growth. We look forward to partnering with you and your family.

In Partnership,

Ms. Wanda James
