Hope Leadership Academy

Hello Falcon Families and Welcome to the

2024-25 School Year!

Every day, the HLA staff is committed to teaching and learning. They work collaboratively on initiative to assist our scholars in striving for success. HLA offers students a rigorous learning environment with small classroom sizes to meet the individual needs of each student.  We encourage teachers to deliver our curriculum in a creative and innovative way, keeping in mind the intellectual, social-emotional, cultural, and creative spirits of the students. The curriculum is aligned with the Missouri Learning Standards. HLA strives to be a world class neighborhood school right in the heart of Kansas City, MO. 

The theme for the 2024-25 school year is "TOGETHER WE CAN!" It is essential that we partner with parents, the community and stakeholders to ensure the academic growth of our scholars at HLA.

This year, we have a strong academic focus. In order to meet the diverse needs of our student population, we will implement new initiatives to better support and address student academic needs. We will be offering STEAM everyday for our K-5 student population. The STEAM curriculum through PLTW "Project Lead The Way", will be taught using our new team teacher model to integrate science in both learning spaces. We are excited to provide our scholars with project based learning that will enhance their critical thinking and creativity.

Hope Leadership Academy is passionate about student academic success. Our goal is to increase student proficiency in the areas of Math and Reading. We believe and we are HOPEful because "TOGETHER WE CAN!"
