LeAp’s nationally recognized Active Learning Leads to Literacy (ALLL) program 2013-14 is underway! This program seeks to improve students’ academic performance through arts-based, hands-on activities and includes museum trips, visits to cultural institutions, and arts and educational materials. LeAp’s ALLL program involves direct student instruction as well as comprehensive staff development workshops. For more information about LeAp’s ALLL program, please click here.

LeAp's new afterschool program at PS 5X, the Port Morris School! "LeAping into Port Morris" is underway! The program focuses on educating students with fun, STEM-based clubs. Clubs that are currently scheduled include Photography, Graphic Arts and Filmmaking, each one perfectly joining the Arts with STEM, producing an exciting environment for students to learn.

LeAp’s NYC August Wilson Monologue competition was a success! The students advancing to the National Competition are now hard at work preparing for the event on May 5th. In February, students from each of the participating schools competed in the August Wilson School Preliminaries. From there, two winners from each school were chosen to move on to the New York City Competition. LeAp is looking forward to May 5th competition at the August Wilson Theater on Broadway!
