Welcome to Helen Y. Davis Leadership Academy

I am honored to welcome you to Helen Y. Davis Leadership Academy Charter Public School (The Academy), an institution like no other in the City of Boston.  The Academy is a 6th-8th tuition free Boston Public Charter School that serves 216 students.

We take great pride in having a staff that reflects our student body, and our abilities to cultivate our community’s future leaders.  Our blueprint to greatness starts with high expectations, a rigorous and culturally relevant curriculum, and a constant emphasis on character development.  In the end, it is our goal to prepare your child to compete in an increasingly demanding world, and to be prepared to lead in college, career, and life.

Through collaboration between all stakeholders, including students, parents/guardians, educators, administrators, the Board of Trustees, and the community as whole, we become an unstoppable force, capable of greatness.

Welcome, and thank you for your commitment to The Academy.


Christopher Coblyn
Interim Executive Director
