Striving to build self-esteem and promote leadership through long-term relationships
The LEAP Academy
Promise, trust and confidence are built through relationships.
Relationships are built with long-term commitments.
No one can succeed on their own. We must help all of our children.
Who We Are
AND WHAT WE BELIEVE
We are a non-profit 501(c)(3) charitable organization based in Madison, Alabama.
In addition to the basics, education must teach each student to become a leader and contribute to his community.
Public School Support
We provide support for innovative public school programs in North Alabama.
Long-term mentoring relationships need to be established between students and their teachers.
We support programs designed to give students the tools they need to address adverse circumstances as they arise.
Failure to serve our children will have long term consequences for both them and our community.
WHAT HAVE WE DONE
WHERE WE WOULD LIKE TO BE
We are in our third year of providing support to Horizon Elementary LEAP Program in Madison.
Madison Cross Roads
The LEAP Academy began supporting the LEAP MXR Program starting in Summer 2019.
Another School in North Alabama?
We are also interested in establishing an additional program in 2021. Proposals due starting Nov 2020. Contact us.
“AN AMAZING OPPORTUNITY”
When I was invited to be a part of the LEAP program, I had no idea what to expect. However, after the first day, I knew it would be an awesome experience for everyone involved. During the school year a teacher’s primary focus is academics. Relationship building falls somewhere underneath. The LEAP program is a special exception because building relationships IS the primary focus.
During the first week I watched students ,that often appeared withdrawn and indifferent during the school year, blossom and become full of personality. Instead of having to start conversations during meal times, I was soon the one who couldn’t get a word in. I learned about their likes, dislikes, and family dynamics. I watched as they learned to respectfully debate and engage with one another. It was truly a blessing to witness so much growth, in such a short period of time. I have no doubt that LEAP made a permanent, positive impact on their lives.
