Hope Charter Leadership Academy is a tuition-free public school that serves students from Kindergarten through Fifth grades. We are located in the historic Oakwood neighborhood and housed in the Barbee School Building that was erected in 1924. The school's progressive, high-quality, student-centered educational program expands educational choices for parents and their children in the public school system, supports a nurturing community of learners, and focuses on enhancing the academic growth, and builds leadership within all students while nurturing social development in every student.
Hope Charter Leadership Academy bases its leadership focus on Stephen Covey's Seven Habits of Highly Effective Kids. As a Leader In Me School, students will discover and practice a set of leadership and life skills from Stephen Covey's book The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People. Leader In Me schools receive national recognition for their emphasis on developing leadership in young children. Incorporating The Leader In Me practices within our school's environment and curriculum assists our students in becoming prepared to succeed in the 21st Century, with critical skills and characteristics such as: motivation, problem-solving skills, trustworthiness, a strong work ethic, goal setting, effective interpersonal skills, academic achievement, a sense of teamwork, and valuing diversity in a global market.
Welcome to the 2015-2016 school year at HCLA where our mission is "Empowering Leaders Today to Change Tomorrow." The instructional and support staff have been continuously working to improve and support our students of Hope Charter Leadership Academy, because we know that each and every student has the ability to be a high achiever as long as we foster academic excellence in teaching, learning, and leadership.
Educational success for all students cannot be complete without an effective partnership with our parents. You are the most essential part of your child's education and it is important that we build a strong relationship in order to best serve our parents.
