Our state-of-the-art building features larger classrooms, full-size gym, dedicated computer lab, art room, and security features to ensure your child’s safety!
Our campus feels like a private school with the benefits of a public school, such as competitive sports, performing arts, and tuition-free education. Our High School, Gilbert Early College, intentionally prepares students to succeed at the college level, allowing them to enroll in college courses beginning their junior year.
At Leading Edge Academy, we combine academic excellence with a passion to know each student and help them succeed in school, character, and life. We care about every student!
Our small class sizes ensure your child gets the education and support they need, in a safe, wholesome environment.
We believe character leads to success, and encourage students to embrace the ``6 Pillars of Character`` both academically and personally.
Students in grades K-8 wear uniforms on campus, with dress-down Fridays and special occasions.
“This is our first year with leading edge and I simply can’t tell you how satisfied I am with this school. The staff is fantastic which in turn makes our kids awesome!!”
"My daughter is safe and being taught more than just academics at Leading Edge Academy!”
Leading Edge Academy will develop lifelong learners who lead with character and achieve academic excellence by educating the whole child and fostering community and parental partnerships.
Founded in 2002 by Delmer Geesey, a pastor with the vision of starting a top-notch traditional education program, Leading Edge Academy schools began with 17 students. Through word of mouth by satisfied parents, the school began to grow each year. In 2007 The Leading Edge Charter Network took this successful format and expanded to East Mesa. The Leading Edge Charter Network continues to expand and currently has school sites in East Mesa, Queen Creek, Gilbert and Maricopa.
