Banks Alumni

What if we could show you how to give back to the community that provided you with an outstanding education and a great place to grow up?

Check out our access to the Banks Contrails and other unique items such as Banks Alumni Shirts just for Alumni.

Banks Academy High School in the East Lake/Roebuck community is for 9th -12 grades. We are providing a great education working to develop a better Birmingham through our graduates. Each family must also pay part of the tuition costs, so they have an investment in their child’s future. With your support, Banks Academy can help restore education to the area, prepare graduates to have meaningful participation in our community, and develop followers of Jesus Christ. Would you join us in this mission?

Our private Christian school allows us to teach the good news of redemption through Jesus Christ. Can you join with us and donate to this life changing venture?  Any amount of donation is valuable

We opened in August 2015 in the old Lakewood Baptist Church location. The address is 8301 8th Avenue South. We are a 501(c)3 Non profit private Christian School.

In 1957 the original Banks High School began with a 9th grade class only and that is the best way for us to start also.

We need Volunteers for:

  • Tutors for after school (2:00-5:00 and on Wednesdays 12:00-5:00)
  • Fundraising Events Helpers (annual banquet, ambassadors for the school)
  • Monthly Donor Lunches Once a Month (We need lunch provided the 3rd or 4th Friday of every month)
  • Mentoring of students, various schedules
  • Teachers aids

To let us know how you want to help, send an email to Corey Milner and be sure to sign up to receive email updates about Banks Academy.


Banks Academy is accredited by the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI).
