The first priority of LEAF Academy is your safety and well-being. We have gone to great lengths ensuring that the physical spaces, systems and procedures guarantee you will live and learn in a safe and comfortable environment. You will have an advisor and a dormitory parent: think of these two adults as your “parents” when you’re away from your parents. You will also be in constant contact with other adults, teachers, staff and coaches to help you build positive and healthy relationships with peers and adults.

The academic building is a former embassy and, therefore, has very safe and strict access controls. The academic building is surrounded by a closed-gate that only students and staffulty can access with an individual key. In the residence hall, other hotel guests are not able to access any of the specific LEAF Academy hallways or living quarters of our students.

There are also 7 of LEAF Academy residential faculty housed full-time on various floors in the building and additional teachers rotate visiting the residence hall throughout the weekday evenings and weekends. In addition, there is a nurse and a senior administrator on-call 24 hours/day.
