Teachers & Staff

Each teacher and staff member at American Leadership Academy  is valued, respected, and empowered to make a real difference. Working together, we contribute to a positive ALA culture and guide students’ learning, while continuing to develop their own personal and professional capabilities. 

Our Teachers

Our teachers think outside the textbook, creating an immersive experience for their students that encourages both educational and personal success.

Our Staff

Our staff members work hard to ensure that students are safe, supported, and cared for—from the classroom to the cafeteria, and beyond.

Our core values

We don’t teach our students to be smart—we R.A.I.S.E. them to be leaders.

The R.A.I.S.E. leadership program takes education beyond the classroom and into the real world, actively developing leadership skills that will serve our students for the rest of their lives. When students and faculty work together to instill R.A.I.S.E. values, we create an exceptional learning environment for all.
