About Leman Classical

Leman Classical is an independently operated, tuition-free public classical charter school with open-admission policies. Many of the foundational principles for the educational philosophy of Leman Academy of Excellence have been formed and established by Dr. Kevin Leman, the founder of the school, who has often dreamed of launching a school and learning environment for young people that willingly engages and embraces parents in the educational process, highlighting the parent-teacher-scholar relationship to bring out the best in each and every child. The primary goal of Leman Academy is to prepare our scholars to become contributing members of society, future leaders, and powerful difference-makers in our world. How does this happen? Well… it starts with relationships, and our school is all about relationships. 

The school’s three core values will drive the success of Leman Academy of Excellence, and fostering relationships is at the core of two of them. We view parent engagement at Leman Academy a critical piece to the success of our school. Research demonstrates that scholar learning and achievement is greater the more active a role the parent plays in the school. We will partner with our families knowing the significant role parents play for a child to reach their full potential in life.

Additionally, we will treat every young person worthy of our utmost attention and respect, and worthy of receiving a rich, generous, connected curriculum that respects each as a learner. Our teachers will greet their scholars at the door as they enter the classroom, letting the young people know on a daily basis that they are valued and cared for by their teacher. This goes back to relationships and creating a positive school culture, which ultimately promotes greater academic learning for all of our scholars. 

Finally, by offering a rigorous classical educational program that significantly impacts scholar learning, we are providing our teachers with a clearly defined and incredibly effective pathway to academic excellence. 


 

OUR MISSION 

Leman Classical offers a rigorous, classical education based on the traditions of Western culture where all disciplines are interrelated allowing scholars the ability to think independently and critically. We purpose to partner with supportive parents, pursue excellence, provide a safe and challenging environment, and instill morals and values in order to produce tomorrow’s leaders today.
