About Us

Charles Acton Leadership Academy

We are a school that is teaching leadership and life skills to students and creates a culture of student empowerment based on the idea that every child can be a leader.

Content from The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People is a key component of the leadership academy.

The 7 Habits is a synthesis of universal, timeless principles of personal and interpersonal effectiveness, such as responsibility, vision, integrity, teamwork, collaboration and renewal, which are common to all people and cultures.

The Leader in Me paradigm sees that every child is capable, and every child is a leader.


Where dreams are inspired and excellence is achieved.


We empower all scholars with excellent habits to achieve their genius leadership potential.
