Students in each grade who have excelled in leading themselves and other students in developing their unique potential receive their awards in front of the entire community.
Leadership Academy senior Kiara C., who is one of several junior and senior high school students who are dual-enrolled at Valencia College, was named to the VC Dean’s List for her outstanding academic performance last semester. Kiara is well on her way to finishing her AA degree and will have that college degree almost finished by the time she graduates from CFLA next spring. Congratulations Kiara!!!

The inaugural graduating class of the Leadership Academy, the Class of 2016!, achieved a 100% graduation rate, with all graduates planning to attend college or pursue a career in the military. Orlando City Commissioner Patty Sheehan delivered the commencement address and each student receiving a degree or diploma gave brief remarks chronicling his or her high school journey and personal growth. Congratulations to this outstanding group of young adults!
