Academy of Leaders (K – 12th grade)
The mission of the Academy of Leaders program (K-12) is to improve student achievement in core academic subjects, develop leadership habits and provide opportunities for students to learn the 21st century skills needed to be college and career ready.
Academy of Leaders
The Academy of Leaders program works to bridge the gap between the scholastic achievement of children from middle- and upper-class families and those children in families that fall beneath these economic profiles. The Program supports higher academic achievement by extending the school day with tutoring and rigorous learning activities. Academy of Leaders also provides social and intellectual enrichment activities such as music, art, physical activities, and gardening to instill a broader set of values and interests.
Academy of Leaders Summer Program
Academy of Leaders Summer Program affords students the opportunity to “beat the summer slump,” offering a six to eight week program of academic classes and enrichment activities. Previous Summer activities have been centered on STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math). Programming included in-depth, hands-on projects such as robotics, NASA space exploration, film making, digital journalism and career field trips to local businesses.
