Our Namesake

Woodward Leadership Academy was founded by a group of dedicated members of San Bernardino County and the larger educational community to provide students with a first-rate educational opportunity in their community. Our founding members have expertise in the areas of accounting, finance, business management, education, Special Education, social work and community development. The cumulative experiences of the founding members* of WLA make them well equipped to operate a charter school.

The Founders believe that all students can learn, but acknowledge that not only through their wealth of educational experiences, but also through substantiated data and research, that all students do not learn in the same manner or timeframe. As such, the Founders believe that Woodward Leadership Academy will meet the needs of its students, parents/guardians and community at a much higher level than could be met in the traditional setting.
