Business Overview

Our Story

Mary L. Booker Leadership Academy develops the next generation of diverse leaders in San Francisco. We prepare our graduates to be successful leaders in college and career through our rigorous, student-centered academic program and our shared belief in leadership, equity, and community.

Our Learning Culture

High Learning Expectations: All students take rigorous core courses in English, History, Math, and Science that are grounded in the Common Core. These courses prepare students for college and career by ensuring that students are engaged in academic discourse, meaningful writing, critical thinking, and the application of grade-level standards to relevant real-world situations.

Culturally Responsive Teaching: All core courses incorporate aspects of our community. It is critical to the MLBLA mission that the content, curriculum and pedagogy of every course is relevant and community-conscious, reflecting the families and individuals we serve. Students will learn how to use critical thinking to analyze and value their identity, community, and the world at large.

Our Approach

Individualized Supports: Every student enters our school with unique strengths, needs, interests, & gaps. We know that there is no sole instructional model that can possibly address all of these differences. Therefore, we have created a flexible school schedule that allows students to move at their own pace and path for a significant portion of their academic day, receiving targeted support from teachers in small group or one-on-one instruction, based on their individual needs.

It Takes a Village: We believe in community. When students join, we help them identify their Dream Team, a collective of adults who directly influence their lives and are invested in their success; this may include parents/guardians, coaches, pastors, and community members.. Additionally, all students participate in a daily Leadership course. This course, which is grounded in a strong social-emotional curriculum based on the Compass Model, focuses on sharp minds, big hearts, noble purpose, and aligned actions. We believe in Restorative Justice. We are proactive and supportive: if a student is “off track”, they work with their advisor, counselor or administrator to “get back on track” rather than being excluded.
