Beginning as a collaboration of like-minded parents, educational professionals, and local businesses, Leading Edge Academy was founded in 2002 and continues to offer an outstanding educational alternative. Through word of mouth by satisfied parents and students, Leading Edge has experienced continued growth and currently has six campuses located in the East Valley. Even with this rapid growth, Leading Edge retains its commitment to academic excellence, small class sizes, and a safe family feel.
Average Class Size
We are a Kindergarten-12th grade college preparatory school that believes in teaching the whole child, through academic excellence and a values-based character program to challenge our students to improve their character and enhance their relationships. We believe in establishing a strong foundation of knowledge, grade-by-grade. Through direct instruction and real world simulation projects, our team of highly qualified teachers provide encouragement, respect, patience, and understanding as we partner with the parent and child to succeed in learning.
We want to partner with you to provide character training! We not only focus on the six character pillars, we teach the foundational principles of why character matters. We know how important it is for you to be involved in your child’s education. That’s why we have many opportunities for you to participate. Also, our smaller class sizes allow for close teacher-parent interaction. We have many parent volunteer opportunities available: classroom aides, lunchroom helpers, office volunteers, special event planners and coordinators, Parent/Teacher Organizations, and optional Family/Parenting classes and workshops. One of the most valuable ways you can be involved in your child’s education is to support them in their schoolwork, attitude, homework assignments, and school attendance.
