Orientation Day is coming soon! Come and meet your teachers, see the classrooms, find out bus information, buy uniforms, sweatshirts and Friday shirts and meet some friends. Our Pre-K, Kindergarten and First Grade students and parents can stop by between 9:00 until 10. Our 2nd – 8th grade students can come by Blake between 11:30 and 12:30 or between 5:00 and 6:00. Parents, would you like to get a head start on some of the paper work? Print the 2015-16 Dress Code Information and the Commitment to Success 15-16, complete and sign them and bring them to Orientation Day. We can’t wait to see you there!
At Blake Academy we believe students need to dress for success. To make sure all of our students look their best at school we have updated our Dress Code Policy for the 2015 -2016 school year. Check it out by clicking 2015-16 Dress Code Policy. Parents may purchase polo uniform shirts (cash only) in the Blake Office for a two weeks period from July 27 – August 6 between 8:00 am – 4:00 pm.

All Polk County Public Schools provide educational options that provide academically challenging curriculum or accelerated instruction to all eligible K-12 students and inform parents and students of these options.

Congratulations to the Blake Academy 8th grade class of 2015! We are so proud of everything you have accomplished. We can’t wait to hear about all the great things you are going to to do in high school and in the future. Some of you have been at Blake since Pre-K. Others joined us for this school year. All of you will always be a part of the Blake family!
Congratulations to Antonisha Williams, Blake graduate from 2007, who just graduated from the University of Florida. Are you a Blake graduate who has done great things? Send us a picture and let us know so we can celebrate you! #WhyBlake? because our graduates are amazing!
Calling all Blake alumni, parents and friends, we need reading mentors Tuesday and Thursday after school. This is a great opportunity for high school students who need volunteer hours or anyone who wants to make a difference in the life of a student.
