The City is Our Classroom

Welcome to Citizens Leadership Academy East, an Expeditionary Learning middle school in northeast Ohio. Our free public community school opened its doors in August 2016/17 and is growing to serve students through 8th grade. We offer our students a hands-on approach to learning, whether in the classroom or in the community.

Our partnerships with local business, artists, hospitals, and non-profit organizations help to enliven and broaden our students’ middle school experience. If you have any questions about CLAE, don’t hesitate to contact us. Look forward to hearing from you soon!

Our Mission

CLA East prepares middle school students to lead in academics, service, and civic engagement during high school, college, and beyond.

Our Approach

Learning is hands-on, and the city is our lab. Building on the Citizens elementary approach, scholars focus on academic rigor and civic engagement.
