We envision a future where all children will be equipped to lead lasting change for their communities and our world.Enroll your child for the 2022-23 school year
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.
UPDATED (2/1/22): Those interested in enrolling a child at the Leadership School this fall should know that our final open-enrollment period ends at 5 p.m. on March 31. Due to a waiting list for second grade students and the trend of decreased preschool and kindergarten enrollments, our Board of Directors approved the decision to double the number of second grade seats to 50, while reducing the number of kindergarten seats to 25. We would still maintain the projected enrollment of 125 students. Because we have a limited number of seats for all grade levels, we anticipate running our final lottery at 9 a.m. on April 1. We will begin a waitlist after the final lottery. The application form can be found at https://theleadershipschoolstl.schoolmint.net.
The Leadership School is enrolling founding student leaders entering kindergarten, first grade or second grade in the 2022-23 school year (current pre-k, k and 1st graders). Kindergartners must turn 5 years old by August 31, 2022.
The Leadership School will enroll fifty students per grade level (in year 1, we will enroll 25 students in kindergarten only). 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.).
