Step Up For Students

We are participating in school choice programs that supply students with scholarships to help them succeed. Visit the Step Up For Students' website for more details by clicking here.


Our mission is to improve the quality of children’s lives through education. Leah Veal, a specialist level educator and equity champion, founded the organization so that children from every community will have access to a high-quality education. Our team envisions a world where all children find value in learning and want to help strengthen their community.


BLI began in 2017 as a one-person initiative, ten students, and a school bus converted into a mobile classroom. Under Ms. Veal’s leadership, the organization has grown to  serve over 200 children annually through academic services and 2,000 + through educational products.

Hear why families and teachers choose BLI

“Private tutoring” covers a wide range of services, which are frequently quite expensive and which offer vastly different levels of targeted instruction. It can be difficult to ascertain what you’re paying for and whether it has a reasonable likelihood of benefitting your child. BLI Learning Labs is a moderately priced option for both group and individual tutoring, but I would describe my child’s experience with BLI tutoring as “priceless.” Some businesses promise very specific results in terms of test scores and reading levels — you won’t find that at BLI. Instead you will find educators with a different approach, who genuinely want to help kids find a love of learning and a path to success! Martha G.
I enrolled my kids in BLI Institute in the beginning of the school year. The pandemic left a lot of gaps in the foundation of their education and I knew putting them back into a public classroom would only frustrate them and widen those gaps. BLI assesses where they are and that is where the gaps begin to get filled in. My kids are able to feel successful and are no longer intimidated by school. They are choosing to read in their free time because they feel successful while doing so. I am so happy we made this choice! Cynthia M.
I purchased one puzzle and book bundle for my science class and after one week, I purchased 5 more. I use the puzzles and books as learning stations in my room, and my kids love them! BLI’s educational products are great for children at various levels of development, being both therapeutic and educational.  This is multisensory learning at its best.  And the innovative packaging is very cool!  Silvia H.
