We thank you in advance for the generous donations that we receive from our Academy families. With your support, our program is able to offer opportunities such as the extended school day and summer session, and enrichment activities such as industry field trips. Our donation drive for the 2017-2018 school year begins on this night, and we hope that you will consider making a financial donation to the Academy program to help sustain and ensure its continued success. Without your support, it becomes difficult to sustain such a program.

Please be aware that parking will be limited due to other events scheduled on this night.

Once again, the Academy team thanks all families and looks forward to seeing everyone on this night.

With gratitude,

Charan Kirpalani

Principal, Black Mountain Middle School


The 2016 - 2017 school year


Your generous donation funds the Summer Session, extra instructional time throughout the regular school year, enrichment activities and more.

As you know, the Academy is built around a set of student, teacher, and parent commitments – one of those commitments is volunteering. We sincerely hope that families will be able to volunteer their time to our students in the Academy program.

Please know that a donation or volunteering is not a requirement for acceptance to the program. Any size donation or commitment to volunteering is appreciated, and will not have any bearing on activities, participation or grades within the Academy program.
