Hope Charter Leadership Academy (HCLA) is a Charter School serving students from high risk backgrounds.  HCLA has been in operation for 15 years, and serves a small population of approximately 135 students.  Our vision as a school community is to inspire enthusiasm for education and to empower our scholars to learn, lead, and succeed. No child’s potential is too small; no family’s odds too great.

We pride ourselves in our leadership focus and base this focus on Stephen Covey’s Seven Habits of Highly Effective Kids. As a Leader In Me School, students 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 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, work ethic, goal setting, academic achievement, and valuing diversity in a global market.

HCLA recently received a grant that allowed for the most high tech model of SmartBoard technology to be placed in each classroom along with Google Chromebooks for each student grades K-5 to use as we implement our 1:1 throughout the school day. The ability to provide this technology expands the engagement and possibilities of academic growth for our student leaders.

Due to the increased enrollment interest, we have multiple openings and are eager to hire staff who have a passion to work with this demographic group of students.
