WHAT WE BELIEVE
At Helen Y. Davis Leadership Academy, Character Development is an integral part of
our curriculum. We truly believe the key to unlocking genius within students of color is to establish cultural relevancy in our coursework, build an atmosphere of scholarly discourse, and to maintain a rigorous athletics and enrichment program that reinforces the belief that students of color are leaders whose voices and talents have yet to be felt. We are committed to building the self-esteem and confidence of our children, which improves classroom performance as their self-love and self-determination allows them to meet the high expectations we set for them as young scholars.
