The Global Leadership Academy (GLA) is for students who have a desire to explore global issues, perform community service, as well as learn and demonstrate leadership skills. Students participate in activities which cultivate global awareness, such as assisting with the Special Olympics School Games (soccer event at Reed Middle School) and working with Make All Children Smile, a foundation that works with school children in Zimbabwe. Features of the GLA include Seven Habits of Highly Effective Teens: The Leader in Me; Debating Skills; The Global Leadership Club; Campus Ambassadors; The California Cadet Program; and The Multicultural Fair. Field trips in the past have included overnight trips to Pali Institute in the Santa Monica Mountains and day trips to The Reagan Discovery Center, California Science Center, Museum of Tolerance, LACMA, Getty Center, Getty Villa, Museum of Latin American Art, California African-American Museum and the Skirball Center.
Information regarding the enrollment/permit process can be found on the Smaller Learning Communities webpage. This information is updated yearly in October.
