Welcome to Jalen Rose Leadership Academy

Jalen Rose Leadership Academy (JRLA) is an open enrollment, public charter high school on the northwest side of Detroit. The Academy began its first academic year in September 2011 and currently serves over 400 ninth through twelfth grade scholars from metro-Detroit. JRLA provides a leadership-focused education that engages and inspires youth to achieve at the rigorous level necessary to ultimately graduate with a college degree.  Scholars are provided with an authentic academic experience which builds both the skill and will necessary to be successful in high school and beyond.  Immersed in the culture of college, scholars will not only receive extensive college exposure via university tours, but also be required to pass at least one Advanced Placement course to assist in a seamless transition into college.  JRLA is a 9-16 model where scholars are supported not only through high school graduation, but through college graduation via our College Success team that works to coordinate success for current scholars and alumni.

The number one predictor of scholar success is regular daily attendance. The more often a scholar misses school, the more likely he/she is to struggle. In order to ensure regular, full day attendance of school, ANY early dismissal between 3:15-4:00 PM is for emergencies only and requires documentation. Please make sure that you and your family follow this policy as it helps us ensure that scholars are attending school and learning as one team, one family!
