The Science Leadership Academy is a partnership high school between the School District of Philadelphia and The Franklin Institute. SLA is an inquiry-driven, project-based high school focused on 21st century learning that opened its doors on September 7, 2006.
SLA provides a rigorous, college-preparatory curriculum with a focus on science, technology, mathematics and entrepreneurship. Students at SLA learn in a project-based environment where the core values of inquiry, research, collaboration, presentation and reflection are emphasized in all classes.
The SLA girls also ran a strong race, despite the appearance of some nasty weather at the start of their race. We are incredibly proud of the strong effort and enthusiasm demonstrated by the cross country team this year, the largest cross country team at SLA to date!
