Citizens Leadership Academy is one of the highest-rated middle schools in Cleveland. CLA is the first Expeditionary Learning School in Northeast Ohio. CLA is also proud to be the first “Citizens” middle school, as one of the Breakthrough Schools in Cleveland. CLA continues Citizens Academy K-5′s highly successful, results-driven academic preparation for success in college and in life. Our school community opened its doors in August 2011 with 90 sixth graders and will be fully enrolled with grades 6-8 in August 2013. Many thanks to all who made our founding mural possible, which hangs in our gymnasium as you enter the school. Students unveiled the mural at our school opening celebration, which included supporters, volunteers, community leaders, and many others who helped make Citizens Leadership Academy a reality.
