Academic Excellence, Responsible Citizenship

Preparing Civically Engaged Leaders
In and out of the classroom, hands-on learning is essential for our curriculum. Every year, we focus on "essential questions" and dig deep into issues that matter to our community. Our mission is to prepare our students to lead in academics, service, and civic engagement during high school, college, and beyond.
CLAG prepares middle school students to lead in academics, service, and civic engagement during high school, college, and beyond.
Learning is hands-on, and the city is our lab. Building on the Citizens elementary approach, scholars focus on academic rigor and civic engagement.
Innovative Academic Program
Core Skill-Building and Learning Expeditions
The Citizens Leadership Academy Glenville curriculum is designed to prepare our students to succeed in rigorous college-prep high schools and then in college and the job market. The curriculum is a synergistic approach based on two discrete learning models: Core Skill Building and Expeditionary Learning. Through this two-pronged educational model, CLAG students will be well prepared for the Ohio state tests, and they will also be well-grounded in the critical 21st-century skills framework.
