Leman Academy Set to Begin Servicing Scholars in Colorado
“This is truly a dream come true to bring such rich classical curriculum, Dr. Leman’s principles and Charlotte Mason’s tools for learning right here to our backyard,” Leman Academy Principal Jason Edwards says.
Leman Academy of Excellence offers a rigorous classical education where the disciplines are interrelated, allowing scholars the ability to think critically. Dr. Edwards and his staff of 47 educators began their staff training in July in preparation for the school’s inaugural year.
“Dr. Leman’s life work as a family psychologist, best-selling author and renowned speaker provides our entire school community a foundational shared philosophy of healthy growth,” Director Victoria Hostin says.
Victoria Hostin is the board president of the charter school, which will begin servicing around 530 scholars on Aug. 9.
Leman Academy purposes to partner with supportive parents, pursue excellence, promote safe and challenging environments, and instill morals and values in order to produce tomorrow’s leaders.
“We are thrilled with our campus opening in Parker, Colorado,” Founder Dr. Kevin Leman says. “We have great leadership here, a great staff, and we just could not be more excited.”
