Welcome to the Leadership Academy! I am pleased to work with an outstanding faculty and staff that is profoundly dedicated to nurturing every aspect of your child's educational development. A true community of learners, our teachers, students and families work collaboratively to implement researched based best practices in order to promote student success. The Leadership Academy is dedicated to building bridges that promote academic, personal, and social growth in our students. We provide students with distinctive programs designed to develop pro-social skills, and promote self-esteem and resiliency. Our faculty and staff works closely with families, district schools, and the School Attendance Review Board (SARB) to serve students who will benefit from an alternative setting.
Our faculty and staff work with all of our students to meet or exceed local and state standards. The Leadership Academy offers small classes with a low student to teacher ratio. Students are supported through intensive behavioral support, truancy intervention, and guided practice in the classroom. Each class also has a full-time para-educator to support our students. The Leadership Academy has a Computer Technician, two full-time Counselors, a Resource Specialist, and a School Psychologist that provides additional support for our students.
We treat our students as individuals by providing them with a differentiated program of study that is best suited for them based upon their ability, readiness, interests, learning styles and needs. Incorporating different modalities of instruction, coupled with our staff's continuous enrichment of their own knowledge base, we strive to ensure that each child's potential is met. In addition to academic growth, an essential component of a child's educational experience is social, emotional, and physical development. By providing a comprehensive learning environment that focuses on the whole child, we hope to assist each individual in developing an enthusiasm for learning that includes happiness and a positive self-image.
At The Leadership Academy, we are extremely proud of the learning environment that has been created. Our goal is to develop lifelong learners with strong character and an inquisitive nature. On behalf of the entire school community, I look forward to a wonderful school year.
