Our mission at Columbus Bilingual Academy North is to provide a nurturing environment of academic excellence, which provides for the development of responsible cross-cultural world citizens with an enriched understanding of self and others.
Our vision is to become a high-performing academy that drives the learning of all children for success in local and global communities through holistic, intellectually inspiring academic and language-acquisition programs.
Community schools offer an alternative to the local public school. They are free and open to all students and focused on meeting student needs for success. Community schools are among the top-performing schools in the nation.
Our educational approach has five principles at its core. These principles provide a strong foundation for learning and include: 1) Culture of respect, 2) High expectations for student achievement, 3) Academic excellence, 4) Safe and nurturing environment, 5) Education and empower.
