The Girls Leadership Academy of Arizona has been selected as one of only 16 schools in the United States (and the only school in Arizona!) to receive the prestigious 2013 Lemelson-MIT Program InvenTeam grant. The award will enable a team of inventive young women to create a drowning prevention T-shirt for toddlers - the "WataWescue." We are so excited by the life-saving potential of this project and hope to send our InvenTeam to Boston next summer, where they will present it at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology's 7th annual EurekaFest. With a contribution to our Annual School Tax Credit program, you can help make this trip a reality for our InvenTeam. For more information click here.
The first public single-gender high school in our state, Girls Leadership Academy of Arizona (GLAAZ) empowers young women to succeed as leaders in their classrooms, in their communities, and in their own lives. We achieve this vision by sustaining rigor, relevance and relationships: the hallmarks of a 21st century school.
Envisioned as the premier educational option for young women, GLAAZ combines the most successful models of school reform with highly effective teachers and curricula that connects the work of the school to the life of our community. GLAAZ shares the attributes of high schools that work: a common focus on research-based goals and an intellectual mission; a small, personalized learning community; technology as a tool for designing and delivering engaging, imaginative curricula; and, rigorous academic standards for both high school and college level studies. GLAAZ is committed to providing opportunities for students to earn college credits beginning in the freshman year of high school. The young women of GLAAZ are empowered to:
- Contribute to our community through service learning and civic engagement
- Participate in school-wide initiatives and decision-making
- Create meaningful community involvement for students, teachers and parents through service learning, job internships and participation in community-based organizations
- Develop leadership skills in our weekly advisory program, supplemented with “Girl Meets World,” a curriculum also selected by Oprah for her leadership school.
