Leman Academy of Excellence, Inc. Growth and Updates
As part of our Leman Academy of Excellence Family we want to take a moment to share the exciting growth we are experiencing this coming school year. You are a part of this! It is because of your commitment to us that we are able to offer this effective instructional model to more scholars, their families and our communities. Our Marana school has blossomed with its high caliber staff, integrated child development philosophies of Dr. Leman and highly effective Classical Model; and, we commit to having the same quality components in all of the schools that follow in its steps.
Leman Academy of Excellence, Marana, our founding school, will begin its third year in August, 2017 of educating young scholars, with Mr. Dennis O’Reilly at the helm as Head of Schools and site Principal. We currently have an enrollment of 1050 scholars in our Preschool through 7th grades. Next school year we will see growth of approximately 200 more scholars as we expand our Middle School to 8th grade. It has been an incredible experience being part of the growth of this school. We count our success in Marana to the incredible culture this community has established through the work of our committed staff, fine scholars and invested families. Thank you!
Leman Academy of Excellence, Sierra Vista will enter its second year of educating young scholars, with Ms. Raquel Lis as the Principal. Currently, the enrollment is 270 scholars in grades Kinder through 6th. Next school year we will expand in Sierra Vista to 7th Grade with an enrollment hovering around 550. By school year 2018-2019 we will be a K-8 school. Our staff at this school are definitely making an impact on the community of Sierra Vista! The Sierra Vista scholars and families have jumped right in and embraced this model and have spread the word to their community.
Leman Academy of Excellence, Oro Valley will open for its inaugural year this coming school year, 2017-2018, with Mrs. Bethany Papajohn as Principal. This campus is nestled just north of the corner of Tangerine and La Canada. We are currently accepting enrollments and have a goal to open with 575 scholars, opening PreK through 6th grades. As we did in Marana and Sierra Vista, we will add a grade each consecutive year until we are a PreK – 8th school in 2019! Please, help us spread the word that we are still accepting enrollments and that the construction is on schedule! If you live near this school consider joining this school community and enrolling your scholar in Oro Valley next year.
