Parents & Students

A Letter to Our Parents

Dear Families,

I want to welcome you and your child to our school. You have made a choice as to where your child is to be educated. We know you had other choices, so we appreciate the confidence you have placed in us, and we believe your choice was a good one.

Carondelet Leadership Academy is a not-for profit public charter school. Our school has been very successful over the last six years showing academic growth that surpasses the achievement of other schools with comparable demographic profiles. Our not-for profit status ensures that the school your child is in will receive the maximum resources available, so that administrators can provide a successful learning environment for your child. We believe that both the school and the parents of our students have the responsibility of educating each child. Thus, CLA is a partner with parents in this important task. Our standards are high, our curriculum is rigorous and our expectations for student behavior and discipline are firm. We believe problem-solving and higher order critical thinking can only occur in a well-ordered, respectful, and disciplined setting. Please review this handbook thoroughly so that you have a thorough understanding of the CLA academic and behavioral expectations.

Carondelet Leadership Academy welcomes parents into our schools and encourages parent volunteer efforts if you are able to do so. We will make every effort to inform you about school activities and you should feel free to contact your child’s teacher or the school Principal regarding any questions or concerns you may have. We look forward to working with you to provide a quality education for your child

Mrs. Coffin, Executive Director
