Preparing civically engaged leaders

In and out of the classroom, hands-on learning is an essential part of our curriculum. Every year, we focus on "essential questions" and dig deep into issues that matter to our community.

A community of civically engaged citizens

CLAE offers high academic and behavioral expectations that promote a sense of ambition, personal responsibility, and a “no excuses” attitude in our students.

At CLAE there is a strong emphasis on student ownership of academic achievement and habits of leadership. The resulting school culture makes school a joyful place, rooted in consistency and positivity. The CLAE school culture also lays a strong academic and leadership foundation for our students to succeed in high school, college, and beyond.
