The Mission of the Roberto Cruz Leadership Academy (RCLA) is to empower students to become community leaders and socially conscious educators. RCLA implements a rigorous Teacher Academy that integrates technology, real-world projects, community values, bi-literacy, and an environment that promotes personalized learning where students have access to post-secondary educational opportunities. RCLA aims to educate students through college preparatory courses that empower them to be academically literate, critical thinkers, effective communicators, and independent problem solvers who are agents of education and social justice with a commitment toward the community around them.
Through its focus on developing leaders, RCLA will graduate students prepared to succeed in a university setting, prepares students to serve the needs of their diverse community, and empowers students, parents, and school staff to utilize their cultural, linguistic, and personal strengths for service. Our rigorous academic curriculum has been accredited by the Accrediting Commission for Schools Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC).
