HEritage Leadership Academy

Heritage Leadership Academy (HLA) is a university preparatory boarding high school focused on educating young women in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM). We strive to transform the lives of the brightest and highly motivated students through our faculty, mentors, and advisors who will guide each student toward their full potential. With small classroom sizes, we want to provide the right balance of nurturing, support, challenge and celebrate them in all we do.

Catering to a diverse all-girls environment, we have the unique ability to vivify their minds, demystify the world of STEM, while reducing the apprehensions around math and science. Our inquiry-based curriculum offers cross-disciplinary problem solving combining art with technology, or physics with computer science to project-based learning opportunities. The academic experience at HLA is immersive and life changing, preparing students for success predicated on our four foundational areas with lasting impact.

We balance our academically enriching environment with a diverse student population from around Africa on a campus nestled in the outskirts of Johannesburg, South Africa. This is an ideal sanctuary for students to unlock their potential. They will have access to an emerging technology hub and global leaders who our students will work side-by-side with on innovative social projects. It is important for us to broaden intellectual and relationship boundaries, explore entrepreneurship opportunities within our communities and see STEM beyond the classroom.

Please feel free to contact us with any questions about our new school. We are excited and look forward to meeting you and welcoming you to our one of a kind school community. We hope you will consider admission to Heritage Leadership Academy where a STEM education will empower you!
