ENTER A LEARNER: EXIT A LEADER
At JRLA we develop ACADEMIC HARD SKILLS (the essential knowledge and skills to succeed), ACADEMIC MINDSETS AND SOFT SKILLS (the resilience and adaptiveness to thrive) and IDENTITY, RELEVANCE AND BELONGING (knowing that you matter as a part of something greater than yourself).
We are the JRLA Jaguars.
Jalen Rose Leadership Academy will empower all scholars to develop the strength of character, skills, and knowledge needed to matriculate into, be great in, and graduate from college so that they have opportunities to be successful in the competitive world and to take care of themselves and the people that they love.
By tapping into the intrinsic power of respect, discipline, and hard work, scholars will unleash the transformative capacity of learning to manifest a better fate for themselves and the people they love.
The power of respect: I find success through empathy and integrity.
The power of determination: I have the will to succeed.
The power of excellence: I must take ownership in my learning to succeed.
The power of family: I succeed when we all succeed.
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:
Scholars must meet six promotional requirements in order to move on to the next grade level:
Academic Success: Pass every class.
Responsibility: Serve all detentions earned.
Self-Regulation: Do not exceed maximum allowable detentions.
Unique Perspectives: Participate in 100 enrichment (extracurricular) hours before graduation (50 before junior year).
Academic Rigor: Enroll in and pass at least one AP course.
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. Each scholar starts and ends his/her day with an advisor. 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.
The Jaguar community would like to offer our condolences to the family of junior scholar, De'Asia Moore, who was tragically killed in a car accident. It is during these tough times that we rely upon the core value of FAMILY to stand united with DeAsia's family, friends, and with you, for those who knew and loved her. Our thoughts and prayers are with our extended family today and always. Please note that JRLA is offering grief counseling to any scholar who desires this support. If your scholar is interested, please complete the following form, and Ms. Cooper will reach out to you directly.
