The mission of Dr. Lena Edwards Academic Charter School (DLEACS) is to ensure educational excellence and character development for all students in grades K-8, cultivating both learning and empathy. Our school provides a stable, rigorous, unbroken continuum of classical academic instruction and formal character education, resulting in the highest levels of student achievement, ethical behavior, and cultural literacy. We are serious about providing a school culture that is productive, consistent and that supports school environment. Our education theme is A Classical Learning Experience of Content‐Rich Academics, Cultural Literacy, and Character Education. 

We know high levels of student achievement takes work—and we know even our youngest ones are ready. We match our high expectations with equally high levels of support. Our rigorous program, complemented by clear expectations for engaged learning and data-driven instruction, includes a wide range of supportive services for our scholars, their families, and the community we serve. Our programs and education curriculum support cultural literacy, exposing scholars and the community to the wider culture, and to issues and challenges of the day. At DLEACS, we are leading, teaching, guiding, and partnering with scholars and families to navigate the world.
