We believe that our parents should feel pride and comfortable in their decision to enrich their child’s education with us.
We have designed an after-school program with depth, structured not only to create a solid foundation of academic core learning, but that will also foster STEAM interests and skills.
We offer academics, FUN, STEAM activities in a ratio that we have perfected over the years.
We give families the ultimate summer with great memories, learning, and growth for children and affordability for the parents.
Our student mentor ratio is an astonishing 1:6 ratio for an optimization of progress.
Experiment, project, video based STEM classes. Physics, biology, Scatch and python coding classes.
We teach kids how to have self control and discipline. Practicing mindfulness helps students manage stress, regulate emotions and develop positive mentality.
Confidence building camp emphasizes self-confidence, courage, public speaking, social skills through speech, debate, acting, theatre drama.
STEAM subjects are recognized as necessary to be able to thrive in the 21st century.
In the 21st century, scientific and technological innovations have become increasingly important as we face the benefits and challenges of both globalization and a knowledge-based economy. To succeed in this new information-based and highly technological society, students need to develop their capabilities in STEAM to levels much beyond what was considered acceptable in the past.” (National Science Foundation) So, we shouldn’t be too shocked when researchers discover a powerful link between STEAM and early childhood; and that by learning STEAM skills early on, children are better prepared for school and future careers (that is, all careers, not just those in STEM, thanks to math skills being found as powerful predictors of later learning).Recruiters are looking for STEAM capable skills that involves problem-solving, the ability to come up with ideas as well as having an “engineering or maker’s mind-set”. Our methods help engage students in learning, and learn in ways that can hold their attention, the way video games and social media does. The easiest way to do this is to make it fun and interesting and hands on!
Leadership Academy is a STEAM after school program based in San Francisco Bay Area. As a pioneering school, Leadership Academy is the only Afterschool program to have a formal comprehensive STEAM education curriculum for the whole academic year. Our curriculum has been developed by a team of international scientists, private school teachers and professors. We cultivate an interest in sciences immediately following elementary school entry through project based incremental learning. This way the chances of STEAM success in high school and beyond can be greatly improved. Students begin to think and problem solve like engineers at younger grades, even in kindergarten. Future careers and job market is based on STEAM and public schools have very little STEAM education. This is where Leadership Academy’s exceptional science, coding, maker’s Club, engineering projects and math curriculum come into play. We also hold fun STEAM summer camps.
