Civic Leadership Academy Home

Mission Statement

The Civic Leadership Academy fosters the academic success, personal growth, and social development of our high school students through service to their communities. Our college preparatory curriculum uses the real world as a classroom in which students develop as leaders who take initiative, solve problems, work as a team, and demonstrate their abilities while addressing real community needs. The community is our textbook, helping to expand our students’ academic and leadership skills as they become future leaders of the world around them.
