ACADEMICS

At Fulton Leadership Academy, we transform students into scholars with a rigorous academic program that sets high expectations for our young men. Our business is teaching and learning. Our college preparatory curriculum prepares our scholars for success in their pursuit of higher education. We have a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) focus and an aviation theme that exposes our students to future careers in the sciences.

 

Our scholars receive skills tests weekly after each new concept is taught in core classes. We track their academic progress with each assessment. If a scholar scores an 85 percent or below on a skills assessment, our academic intervention policy alerts us to provide support and enrichment to that young man. We offer Saturday school and tutoring to help our students master the curriculum.

 

As a public charter school, we use creative strategies to help our young men thrive in the classroom. We have a contract with the state Department of Education to out-perform the traditional local public schools in our district. We have flexibility from restrictive state mandates over traditional schools that allow us to get creative to boost student achievement. Some of the creative strategies that we use include an extended school year, an extended school day, and single-gender education. We have smaller than average class sizes and a caring staff dedicated to helping scholars to succeed. Our mission is to help our young men "soar to greater heights."

CIRRICULUM

FLA has a college-preparatory curriculum that focuses on science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM), with a thematic integration of aviation and aeronautics. FLA offers advanced core courses and for scholars classified as Talented and Gifted (TAG) or “high potential”.
 

Curriculum and learning experiences in each course provide all students with challenging and equitable opportunities to develop learning skills, thinking skills and life skills. There is much evidence to indicate curriculum coupled with learning experiences prepare students for success at the next level.
 

All of our courses have equivalent learning expectations. Our handbook states that both Middle and Upper school scholars must pass every course, electives included, to be promoted to the next grade. Every teacher is required to provide scholars (whom have been identified) with a remediation plan and ensure that plan is implemented for each scholar. For scholars that are retained, we create an Individualized Learning Plan. This plan is used to ensure that the retained student is receiving the learning, thinking, and life skills necessary for promotion. The progress monitoring is intentional and consistent, such that often times students are able to move into the correct grade after the 1st semester.
 

TALENTED AND GIFTED SERVICES
 

The Gifted Program provides services for identified students at all grade levels. These services are designed to meet the specific academic needs of gifted students. The requisites for identifying and placing students in the gifted program are governed by Georgia State Department of Education Rule 160-4-2-.38. ( GaDOE.org)
 

At all grade levels, the objectives of the program are to:

  1. Develop advanced research skills and methods.

  2. Develop and practice creative thinking and creative problem-solving skills with a variety of complex topics within the area of study.

  3. Develop and practice critical thinking and logical problem-solving skills in the pertinent academic area.

  4. Develop advanced communication skills.

  5. Develop an understanding of self and how their unique characteristics may influence interactions with others.
