Together, with families and the community, Fordham Leadership Academy provides students with the skills to reach their human potential, while simultaneously engaging in the exploration of college, community and career opportunities to craft the change they wish to see in the world.
Welcome to the Fordham Leadership Academy website. It is one of my greatest honors to be the Principal of this amazing Community School. My story is similar to countless of others, of humble but proud beginnings and living testament of what public education can accomplish. This is what FLA is all about!
FLA was established in 2015 and since it has become a thriving, vibrant and caring community where children are nurtured, their voices carry strength, and are built into leaders. As a school leader, I am a firm believer that through quality education lives can be transformed and communities can gain a voice. This is FLA's commitment- to provide the tools needed to empower students to succeed.
Lastly, I leave you with a quote from one of the most transformative leaders of our time:
“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.” ― Nelson Mandela
