Girls Leadership Academy
Girls Leadership Academy of Arizona (GLAAZ) empowers young women to succeed as leaders in their classrooms, in their communities, and in their own lives. We achieve this vision by sustaining rigor, relevance and relationships: the hallmarks of a 21st century school. Envisioned as the premier educational option for young women, GLAAZ combines the most successful models of school reform with highly effective teachers and curricula that connects the work of the school to the life of our community. GLAAZ shares the attributes of high schools that work: a common focus on research-based goals and an intellectual mission; a small, personalized learning community; technology as a tool for designing and delivering engaging, imaginative curricula; and, rigorous academic standards for both high school and college level studies. GLAAZ is committed to providing opportunities for students to earn college credits beginning in the freshman year of high school. The young women of GLAAZ are empowered to:
- Contribute to our community through service learning and civic engagement
- Participate in school-wide initiatives and decision-making
- Create meaningful community involvement for students, teachers and parents through service learning, job internships and participation in community-based organizations
- Develop leadership skills in our weekly advisory program, supplemented with “Girl Meets World,” a curriculum also selected by Oprah for her leadership school.
Go Girls Leadership Academy!
