At all 12 American Leadership Academy campuses, we pride ourselves in providing a safe, nurturing, and optimal learning environment. We know that leaders start and blossom in the classroom, and work hard to provide a place where students can grow emotionally and intellectually. 

Our growth

American Leadership Academy was founded in 2009, based on our mission to provide the best educational experience to as many students as possible in a moral and wholesome environment. We wanted to create a school where we’d be comfortable sending our own children—where we could feel confident that they were learning everything they needed to learn to succeed in school and in life, without the distractions and problems students face in other schools.

Our message has resonated with other parents, too. Now, from our small beginnings, we’ve expanded our organization to bring ALA to a number of communities and families. Through it all, we have worked to bring to life our vision to learn, lead, and change the world.
