Experiential Learning Approach

At the Leadership Academy, we believe that learning takes place both in and out of the classroom. As a school, we are dedicated to provide our young men with a well-rounded education that includes ample experiences within our greater Rochester community.

Examples of these experiences include:

  • Visits to local colleges (including UR, Keuka, Nazareth, St. John Fisher, & SUNY Geneseo)
  • Mock trials with practicing legal professionals
  • Field trip to see Contagion at the movie theater
  • Field trip to see Red Tails
  • Historical re-enactments at Old Fort Niagara
  • Speeches from local law enforcement professional Officer Moses Robinson
  • Biology labs with medical students from the University of Rochester
  • Black History Month Celebration
  • Thanksgiving Celebration
  • Field trip to Paychex to participate in group marketing projects
  • Field trip to meet Governor Cuomo
  • Black History Tour of NYC
  • Freshmen Interviews
  • Mock testing period
  • JROTC Marksmanship Competitions
  • Presidential Fitness Competition
  • JROTC Summer Wilderness Training
  • Many, many more to come...
