Bell Academy

Bell Academy’s mission is to empower every child to learn, inspire, and grow each and every day. Our vision is to provide a quality education to every child, every day in order to develop a community of lifelong learners who are productive citizens. Our school is located in Boyle, a rural town in the Mississippi Delta. Bell Academy has selected Math, Science, and Health Education as the theme to best fulfill the purposes of the Magnet Schools Assistance Program. Health Education is a multidisciplinary field built upon solid knowledge and skill in science, mathematics, technology, and communication. Bell Academy’s current enrollment is 341 students from Pre-Kindergarten to 6th grade. 56% of the student population are male and 44% are female. Race demographics of the student population: 55% are black, 40% are white, 3% Hispanic, and 2% other.

The service member will also have a relationship with the cafeteria staff to assist in taste testing discussion of ways to incorporate fresh foods into the cafeteria. Bell Academy Sprouts committee members are excited to have input and involvement of a FoodCorps service member to lead and bring new ideas for sustainability of the program. All of these areas will be important to reach the overall culture of health for the students and community.
