Central Florida Leadership Academy offers college prep academics, with students taking primary responsibility for their learning. More than 95 percent of CFLA graduates are expected to ultimately gain acceptance at four-year colleges (some following completion of a two-year college program), consistent with the schools on which CFLA is modeled.


The CFLA approach to education is based on the Hyde School model, which has been developed since 1966 at the Hyde boarding campuses in Bath, ME, and Woodstock, CT, and through public school initiatives in New Haven, CT, and Washington, DC. CFLA students are expected to master the Next Generation Sunshine State Educational Standards, with character development at the heart of the educational experience.


CFLA offers seven class periods each day, allowing students additional time in class and flexibility in selecting electives of their choice.
