GJ Leadership Academy

Welcome to the GJ Leadership Academy website! 

We are excited that you are here to learn more about our school and how we can be a part of your family’s educational journey!

About Us

GJ Leadership Academy would like to join with you and your child to develop a life-long love of learning. 

Together we can create the leaders of tomorrow, build strong character, encourage independent and critical thinking, and bring out the genius in every child.

When you choose GJLA, you choose an extraordinary experience for your child and your family. Our curriculum is rooted in the Thomas Jefferson philosophy, mixed with Montessori, but includes so much more! 

Our teaching methods, which encourage open discussion critical thinking combined with strong family values, work together to create a rich and stimulating educational environment where children thrive!

Our Mission

We are an independent educational environment empowering students to find their own genius and use their knowledge and love of learning to become leaders.
