Kenwood Leadership Academy


Kenwood Leadership Academy (KLA) is on a mission to see, inspire, and empower the lifelong learner and leader in all of us. KLA infuses leadership in virtually everything they do. Students, teachers, and staff practice and live The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People/Happy Kids from The Leader in Me to build leadership skills and dispositions while engaging in teaching and learning. All learners are exposed to the behaviors and beliefs of leaders, helping them to discover their own unique potential. KLA fosters the growth of creativity and innovation to help students identify their passions while learning to be goal setters, problem seekers, and problem solvers. Students will be empowered to take the lead in their learning while developing 21st century skills and sharing their strengths and passions with the community.

Enrollment at Kenwood Leadership Academy is by residing in the Kenwood neighborhood attendance zone or through the elementary magnet school lottery. The 2018-2019 magnet school lottery will open February 1, 2018.
