Great Hearts Initiatives | Ryan Banks Academy

Mission

Ryan Banks Academy was founded as a coeducational boarding school in 2014 and seeks to impact the lives of students through a rigorous college and career preparatory education, a supportive boarding program, and a focus on personal development in a positive environment.

We teach our students not only the value of education, but also encourage our students to focus on cultivating their own unique strengths, interests, and passions so that they may lead a purpose-filled life. We take a holistic view of the student as a whole person, and our curriculum focuses not just on their academic pursuits but also on developing their relationships, core values, mindset, and our students learn how to set goals and to plan for their future.

We encourage our students to take on leadership positions in their community and we also teach the importance of giving back to others. Our students are not just encouraged to think critically, but also to expand their idea of what is possible by pushing the boundaries of their own comfort zone and to look at the world as being full of limitless possibilities.

We take a strengths-based approach to learning and building confidence, and we believe that each and every one of our students has a legacy within them to change the world.
