East Lee Leadership Academy
The East Lee Leadership Academy (ELLA) provides students with a high-quality education, incorporating the JROTC principles of leadership, discipline, patriotism, community service, and honor. Our staff is dedicated to the development of the mental, physical, and moral well-being of all student-cadets by preparing these young men and women to become productive and self-directed American citizens.
The vision of ELLA is to become a world-class provider of leadership education and to prepare students for career success by providing rigorous and relevant learning opportunities while challenging students to achieve the highest potential of their minds and bodies. At the heart of (ELLA) vision is the determination to create independent learners; this is accomplished by providing a personalized experience enabled by universal access to education through technology, wherever and whenever our learners choose.
The faculty and staff at East Lee County High School (ELCHS) are entirely dedicated to the students and their families. ELLA believes that parents are an essential component for success. We create a well–rounded student by welcoming families into our world-class learning environment. Our community is boundless with unlimited access to the world through educational technology tools. We educate outside of the traditional means by offering technology on and off campus, utilizing outdoor classrooms (such as our rappel tower and firing range), and allowing students to learn at their own pace by varying teaching styles.
The ELLA goal is the improved academic achievement of all students at East Lee County High School and we breathe the motto, “Success is the Only Option.”
