Message from the Principal


Dear Parents, Students and Community Members:

Welcome to the Leadership Academy, where we are committed to continue to strive for excellence in all arenas on our campus. We are continuing to spread the “Lion Pride” commitment with all staff and students.

Lion Pride

We at the Leadership Academy of Excellence take pride in what we do. Our job is to strive for excellence in our behavior and academics. Our goal is to respect everyone that touches our campus.

This year our goal is to increase in student capacity and serve all student needs. We are located in the town of Florence, a tight knit community with a long history of school spirit, tradition and pride. We are very proud to provide a variety of high quality academic programs that are designed to help further engage and connect our students to school. Our vision for our students at the Leadership Academy of Excellence is to empower all students to strive for academic excellence as they build Leadership skills for their future.​ If you would like to learn more, please contact us so that we can answer your questions and explore an educational plan for your child. 

As usual, I would like to ask parents to please remind your child that we at the Leadership Academy are focusing on displaying respect and using professional language. Please discuss with your child about the importance of being on time to school and working hard every single day. Please don’t hesitate to call my office if you have questions or concerns at 520-866-3529.



Dr. Sonia Bribiescas
