What is the Promising Futures Leadership Academy? 

A program about our kids...


There are many reasons that learning may become a challenge for any students:

Promising Futures Leadership Academy is an opportunity available to students who may be having difficulty academically or socially in their current school. Thrive in a new environment with the supports you need to succeed!

Because you are your child’s greatest advocate and teacher, we ask that you continue to guide and support your child’s learning by ensuring that he/she:

Attends school daily and arrives on time, ready for the day’s learning experience.

Completes all homework assignments/projects given by the teachers and accesses their School Email and other necessary platforms Daily (Computer access is needed; please let us know if your access to a computer/laptop changes)

Reads daily to improve literacy skills and to develop/support a love for reading.
Shares (school) experiences with you so that you are aware of his/her school-life.
Support from ARISE: See this Presentation on Understanding Anxiety in Teenagers:


We will create a collaborative, caring, creative environment, which supports students' academic, social and emotional needs so that they are College and Career-Ready as they continue their successful life journeys as positive, contributing members of society.


We will provide a school environment that prepares students to be college, career and life-ready by fostering high student achievement, success for all learners, and collaboration with all stakeholders.


The culture and climate committee's initiative is to create an environment among staff and students that encompasses the values of PFLA/Promise: These values will guide and encourage school and student growth.



Show PRIDE and school spirit. Clean up and respect our school. Use appropriate language.


FOCUS and Represent our school with good manners. Be involved in the community. Support peers.


Be a positive LEADER and role model, advocate for yourself and others, go above and beyond expectations.


Be ACCOUNTABLE and own your own behaviors. Challenge yourself, track your progress, be on time for each class every day, and strive for academic excellence.
