Mission

To provide a meaningful and challenging learning environment for all BAVEL students outside the walls of a traditional public school.

Vision

BAVEL students will achieve personal success and become responsible, productive citizens to reach their desired goals.

Who We Are

The Barren Academy of Virtual and Expanded Learning (BAVEL) was established in 2004 by innovative minds who envisioned giving parents and their children another educational option outsides the walls of a traditional school. BAVEL is a public school recognized by the Kentucky Department of Education. In addition, BAVEL is accredited by the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA). BAVEL curriculum is provided primarily by Flexpoint Education , in addition to Dual Credit partnerships with numerous Kentucky colleges and universities.

BAVEL serves a diverse population of students previously enrolled in public, private and home schools. BAVEL students have been identified as everything from gifted and talented to students at-risk. However, BAVEL doesn’t focus on the labels; it focuses on the students to provide a meaningful and challenging learning environment for all BAVEL students outside the walls of a traditional public school.

Beyond fulfilling public school requirements, the flexible nature of BAVEL’s digital learning allows students to customize their schedules by registering for one or more courses from a menu of core content, Advanced Placement (AP), and college dual credit. In addition, some students simply want to accelerate their learning.
