(LPA) is a new Charter School approved by the Georgia State Board of Education and the DeKalb County Board of Education and opened in August 2010. The mission of LPA is to develop leaders with the skills for the 21st century by establishing leadership training, rigorous academics, and character building, along with a program designed to engage parents as model leaders in the home. The leadership component is the unique aspect of this academy and leadership studies will be the model embedded throughout the Georgia Performance Standards curriculum across all disciplines and grade levels .


Our CHILDREN, the leaders of tomorrow is critical. They must recognize and understand that leadership is demonstrated in every aspect of life. They must be able to apply the principles of leadership to their everyday lives. This will be accomplished by providing technology enriched, student- focused, performance-based classrooms that meet the social and academic needs of diverse learners.


A strong academic program is the cornerstone of LPA. While we build leaders, we realize that effective leadership can only be attained concurrently with a strong academic foundation in reading, writ- ing, computing, higher order thinking, and creativity. We believe that as students learn and acquire these skills, they will become self-actualized and independent learners, accepting responsibility for setting and attaining goals.
