At iLEAD Schools, our mission can be stated simply: “Free to Think. Inspired to Lead.”

Our vision is to use project-based and social-emotional learning concepts to inspire and motivate lifelong learners with the skills they need to lead in the 21st century. We incorporate technology into every component of our curriculum, and we value and encourage development of leadership skills by inspiring confidence and character in each of our unique learners.

We know that for our learners to succeed, they must feel at home in the world. This requires a firm grounding in the arts, humanities, and sciences — and a strong foundation in social-emotional learning. We believe there is an implicit, as well as an explicit, curriculum to teach, and our goal is nothing short of shaping learners who change the world.

iLEAD Schools are based on a new paradigm: Project-Based, Deeper Learning. We create open, innovative TK-12 learning environments that promote a deeper understanding of curriculum and celebrate independent critical thinking, cooperation, and the development of crucial skills.

“The culture of school is radically at odds with the
culture of learning necessary for innovation.”
