We envision a future where all children will be equipped to lead lasting change for their communities and our world.
The Leadership School is a free, open enrollment public school for students residing in the 24:1 footprint, within the Normandy Schools Collaborative district boundaries, in which it will operate. We are nonsectarian in our programs, admissions policies, and all other operations, and will not discriminate, for admission or otherwise, on the basis of race, ethnicity, religion, national origin, sexual orientation, disability, gender, income level, or proficiency in the English language.
Students have a right to enroll in MOCAP Virtual Instruction classes at The Leadership School's expense unless it is determined that it is not in the best interest of the student. Please reference our Board policy.
UPDATED (12/01/23): Those interested in enrolling a child at the Leadership School this fall should know that our open-enrollment period ends at 5 p.m. on January 31, 2024.
The Leadership School is enrolling student leaders entering kindergarten, first grade, second grade, third grade and fourth grade in the 2024-25 school year (current pre-k, k, 1st, 2nd and 3rd graders). Kindergartners must turn 5 years old by August 31, 2024.
The Leadership School will enroll fifty students per grade level. In the event that we fill all seats in any grade and still have family interest in enrolling their child, a school lottery will be conducted. Students will be selected from the lottery on a first-come, first-serve basis with the exception of students who receive preferential admission according to RSMo 160.410. The Leadership School will not have specific requirements for admission (e.g. minimum grade point average, test scores, discipline records, etc.).
Preliminary enrollment for the 2024-25 school year is from December 1, 2023 to January 31, 2024. We are accepting enrollment for Kindergarten through Fourth Grade.
What if Preliminary Enrollment fills up?
If every spot for the 2024-25 school year fills up during our preliminary enrollment, all families will be placed in a lottery system to determine which children will have the opportunity for enrollment.
The Lottery will be conducted at 10am on February 2, 2024.
Enrollment for the 2024 -25 school year will continue after the preliminary enrollment window — from February 1, 2024 to August 26, 2024. Students will be accepted on a rolling basis.
What if Ongoing Enrollment fills up?
If our enrollment meets capacity, families will be added to our waitlist and enrolled if any spots become available.
