About Us

The Academy of Public Leadership (APL) creates an environment that fosters critical thinking, problem solving and public advocacy skills by combining a comprehensive, standards-based curriculum with education about law, democracy and human rights. APL uses class cohorts to create a family environment and a strong support system for students. Each cohort continues together in grades 9-12, accompanied by the same teachers. This model offers a unique approach to inspiring achievement. Academy of Public Leadership is a non-application school serving grades 9-12, including special education classes.
