Elementary Education Focused on the Individual


     Woodbury Leadership Academy is a public charter school that will emphasize building bright, successful learners who will be ethical people capable of conquering any obstacle placed before them.  As a charter school, there is no tuition to attend.

     Woodbury Leadership Academy is an excellent place for children to start as Kindergarten students and progress through their elementary path to eighth grade.

     We will provide a safe environment with teachers and students all focused on a challenging curriculum and a healthy environment that fosters student leaders.

     Unlike other schools where children can get lost in the shuffle, we place emphasis education for the individual child. Everyone learns best in their own unique way. We honor and celebrate that uniqueness and encourage each child's natural curiosity.


 What Makes Woodbury Leadership Academy Unique?

  • High expectations for students and staff          
  • Instruction tailored to your child and their needs
  • Small class sizes         
  • Strong parent partnerships
  • High quality, experienced, passionate staff          
  • Authentic assessment methods
  • Traditional core academics and research-based learning        
  • Individualized instruction where children become increasingly responsible for their learning
  • We are a uniform school.  Please read our uniform policy.  Our approved uniform vendors are:  EmbroidMe and Classy Threads of MN

2015 / 2016 School Year will be K - 7.
