“My son transferred to JRLA ...and he has had more experiences and opportunities in the two months that he has been there as opposed to the two years he was at his former school."
Koron Dorsett, Parent
Welcome from Jalen Rose Leadership Academy
We know the path to college.
College & Post-Secondary Acceptance
Get the latest and greatest from JRLA
We don't create students. We cultivate scholars.
Scholars at JRLA have many unique opportunities and experiences. When a scholar graduates from JRLA, the scholar is well-rounded and truly lives the values of the school. We develop this intrinsic motivation through a variety of requirements. Some of the standout elements of Jalen Rose Leadership Academy include:
College Rigor AP, College Access, etc.
Scholars must meet five promotional requirements in order to move on to the next grade level:
Academic Success: Pass every class
College Access: Earn at least two acceptances to a college or post-secondary program
Summer Learning Adventures (SLAs)
All scholars (that do not have to take summer school) have the opportunity to participate in a summer learning adventure. SLAs include internships (paid and unpaid), college experiences, and dual enrollment. SLAs are coordinated for scholars by JRLA staff. In addition, scholars are provided transportation and access to these experiences at no cost to scholars and their families.
All scholars at JRLA enter the school as a member of an advisory family. The advisor is with the scholar for all four years of the student's high school career and serves as the scholar's advocate. Advisors connect with parents, help advisees develop academic and personal skills, and meet with each scholar's parent/guardian each quarter to go over the scholar's report card and other promotional requirements.
Developing Self Regulation
The Scholar Code of Conduct (SCC) at Jalen Rose Leadership Academy helps scholars develop strong self-regulation so that the scholars will have the willpower to succeed in life beyond the classroom. JRLA also employs restorative techniques to facilitate healthy, productive relationships between scholars and staff.
We believe that every scholar can succeed. This is why all scholars at JRLA will be put on the path to attend college. Our best-in-class college team supports scholars as they prepare for, apply to, matriculate into, and persist through college.
