HLA is committed to diversity, inclusivity and participation in all activities and programs regardless of race, color, religion, socioeconomic status, or national origin. The overall health and strength of our community is predicated off of the simple pledge that every person feels welcomed, valued and respected. We also believe being of service to our external community helps shape and give context to perspectives, inherent privileges, disadvantages and prejudices.
The Academy is aimed at motivated and intellectually curious students. We will look for well-rounded young women who are excited to learn and are passionate about making a positive in their communities.
We will strive to have a student body that reflects Africa's diverse cultural, racial, geographical and socio-economic backgrounds.
