Science Leadership Academy
The Science Leadership Academy is a partnership high school between the School District of Philadelphia and the Franklin Institute. SLA is an inquiry-driven, project-based high school focused on 21st century learning.
SLA provides a rigorous, college-preparatory curriculum with a focus on science, technology, mathematics and entrepreneurship. Students at SLA learn in an environment where the core values of inquiry, research, collaboration, presentation and reflection are emphasized in all classes.
The structure of the Science Leadership Academy reflects its core values, with longer class periods to allow for more laboratory work in science classes and performance-based learning in all classes. In addition, students in the upper grades have more flexible schedules to allow for opportunities for dual enrollment programs with area universities and career development internships in laboratory and business settings, as well as with The Franklin Institute.
