On behalf of the staff at Jalen Rose Leadership Academy (JRLA), I am happy to welcome you to the 2023-24 school year!


JRLA’s mission is to ensure that our scholars matriculate and successfully complete their post-secondary pursuits so that they can take care of themselves and the people that they love. Our mission is everlasting.


​We know that you are your child's first and most important teacher. We also know that you are our most important partner in ensuring that our scholars achieve everything they are capable of achieving. At JRLA, we actively work to partner with you to ensure that your child receives an exceptional education.


​Our teachers and staff members are dedicated to nurturing educational values that promote high academic standards. At JRLA, we have a committed group of adults working together with the support of dedicated parents and community members. JRLA, in partnership with Phalen Leadership Academies, will continue to extend these relationships to ensure that our scholars receive our collective very best!​
