American Leadership Academy - Charter Schools in Mesa & Gilbert, Arizona (AZ)

American Leadership Academy, Gilbert, is now a Lighthouse School! This is a big honor as we are only the 23rd school in the world to achieve this honor.












The Lighthouse School designation is given by the Leader In Me Organization to schools that demonstrate outstanding implementation of the Leader In Me program. There are now over 700 Leader in Me schools around the world with more popping up everyday.

The Leader in Me is a whole-school transformation model that acts like the operating system of a computer — it improves performance of all other programs. Based on The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People®, The Leader in Me produces transformational results such as higher academic achievement, fewer discipline problems, and increased engagement among teachers and parents. Better yet, The Leader in Me equips students with the self-confidence and skills they need to thrive in the 21st century economy.

The model addresses the key skills that businesses and educators have identified as vital to the futures of today’s students. These skills include:

Leadership
Responsibility
Accountability
Problem Solving
Adaptability
Communication
Initiative and self-direction
Creativity
Cross-cultural skills
Teamwork

Teaching all of these skills requires a partnership between parents and the school. To help facilitate this partnership, we host after school seminars on The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Families. This helps parents take the same habits their kids are learning at school and apply them to the home. We promise that if you apply the principle consistently and correctly you will see amazing results!
