All courses combine traditional academic pursuits with experiential learning, teamwork and collaboration.

You can find the detailed descriptions of all courses offered here.

Our high school program offers two entry points, Year 1 (Grade 9) or Year 3 (Grade 11). Students pursuing our 4-year program spend the first 2 years following an internally developed curriculum. All Year 3 and Year 4 students in addition to our core and elective classes also take a number of university-level Advanced Placement (AP) courses.

We currently offer 23 AP courses. In addition, students have the option of and are assisted in preparing for taking additional AP exams, based on their interests and abilities.

LEAF Academy is also approved by The College Board to offer the AP Capstone Diploma™ program.

AP Capstone Diploma

Students take two compulsory AP courses: AP Seminar and AP Research. Each course is year-long, and AP Seminar is a prerequisite for AP Research. Both courses guide students through completing a research project, writing an academic paper, and making a presentation on their project. These courses are designed to complement other AP courses that the AP Capstone student may take. Instead of teaching specific subject knowledge, AP Seminar and AP Research use an interdisciplinary approach to develop the critical thinking, research, collaboration, time management, and presentation skills students need for university-level work.
