Welcome to Jalen Rose Leadership Academy
Jalen Rose Leadership Academy (JRLA) is an open enrollment, public charter high school on the Northwest side of Detroit. The Academy began its first academic year in September 2011 and currently serves over 400 ninth through twelfth grade students from metro-Detroit. JRLA provides a leadership-focused education that engages and inspires youth to achieve at the rigorous level necessary to ultimately graduate with a college degree. Students are provided with real-world and project-based experiences and will receive extensive college exposure and course opportunities through a partnership with the University of Detroit Mercy (UDM). Immersed in the culture of college, they will have the opportunity to take university courses as upperclassmen to ensure a seamless transition for college entry. As a Michigan Future Schools initiative grant recipient, the Academy recognizes their expectation of 85% high school graduation, 85% college enrollment, and 85% college graduation, and will meet or exceed these standards.
