Teaching and Leadership Academy » Welcome


The Teaching and Leadership Academy (TA) is a Small Learning Community (SLC) developed for Kennedy students to explore careers in the field of education.

The Academy is open to all freshman or sophomore students, who fill out and are accepted through the application process. 


The Academy partners with other community agencies to provide scholarships, mentorships, and internships to greatly enhance our students' learning experience while giving them a glimpse into the real life of a teacher. 


Our students develop strong communication skills with both children and adults, which builds their self-esteem, and helps them to become strong leaders.


 We also prepare our students for college life by making them aware of academic expectations they will face in college. Students will have the opportunity to visit college campuses where they will interact with college students and professors.
