The George and Veronica Phalen Leadership Academies (PLA) is a network of high quality, tuition-free public schools that help children excel in their academics and grow as well-rounded individuals.
In Indianapolis, fewer than 60% of children can read, write and compute proficiently. At PLA, where the vast majority of our students come from underserved communities, scholars increased their reading and math proficiency to 88%.
At PLA, scholars have a safe and caring learning environment. We only hire educators who truly care about our students and families. Our scholars grow socially, emotionally, and physically through art, music, physical fitness, college campus visits, scholar-led community service projects and more. Scholars have access to state-of-the-art facilities equipped with the latest technology, providing 1-to-1 access to laptops and award-winning educational software.
We believe that with the right education, all children can fulfill their tremendous innate potential.
