Welcome to 

Academy for Environmental Leadership



The Academy for Environmental Leadership (AEL) is a college preparatory high school. We are a small innovative learning community currently serving grades 9 through 12 with a highly collaborative approach to teaching and learning. We are focused on preparing students for both college and career, even as we endeavor to make them part of a global response to preserving and sustaining our environment. Grounded in the humanities and sciences, students are exposed to a curriculum that provides a comprehensive academic education as well as opportunities to see the relevance of that education to their own lives as members of global society.
We are committed to ensuring that every student is held to the highest standards, has consistent opportunities for intellectual engagement, and becomes knowledgeable about, and active leaders in, the preservation of the earth and its peoples. We believe in creating home-school partnerships and finding ways to meet and support the needs of our students and their families. We believe that active parental involvement is essential to the success of our school and encourage parents/guardians to participate in all aspects of school life.
