About the Academy of Leaders Program
The Academy of Leaders middle school after-school and summer program provides academic and youth development programming for sixth through eighth grade students after school and during summer. The program works to improve student achievement in academic subjects, develop leadership habits and provide opportunities for students to learn the 21st century skills needed to be college and career ready.
The program’s design incorporates all elements of proven highly-effective after-school program models, including academic tutoring in core subjects, project-based STEAM curriculum (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math), enrichment activities, leadership development and parent/family involvement.
The Academy of Leaders furnishes the academic proficiency and nurtures the self-efficacy necessary for students to succeed in school and prepare for post-secondary education and career readiness.
