Welcome to Perspectives Leadership Academy
Located in the former Calumet High School building in the Auburn Gresham community, Perspectives Leadership Academy (PLA) is one of three schools that Perspectives Charter Schools opened in this building in 2007. The vision of PLA is to prepare all scholars for college success, equipped with the passion and tools to become intellectually reflective, caring, and ethical leaders engaged in a meaningful life. Academic Rigor combined with A Disciplined Life and Leadership Development will prepare all scholars to be college-ready.
PLA has various community partnerships that enhance the educational experience of our scholars. We partner with professionals from Ernst & Young LLC to provide mentorship and special workshops to our scholars. Perspectives has partnered with Northwestern University's Kellogg School of Business to develop and implement a strategic plan to infuse leadership development into all facets of the school, including curriculum, teacher-training, and extended-day programming. The Civic Leadership Foundation has also partnered with the school to develop our Social Entrepreneurship curriculum.
