Join Us in Meeting the Challenge!

We appreciate your interest in the Chattanooga Girls Leadership Academy.

CGLA launched as a start-up in 2009 to provide a leadership, STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts and math), and college preparatory curriculum to a diverse population of young women, grades 6-12.  We are excited that this year’s enrollment has reached 203 and our first class of college-bound seniors will be graduating in May, 2013


As a public charter school built upon the best practices of the Hamilton County Department of Education, we guarantee our girls are successful student and contributing members of our community by providing:

  • more teaching hours
  • educational enrichment
  • tutoring
  • a strong college preparatory curriculum
  • college campus visits
  • technology integrated in all classrooms and
  • wellness

Your support will transform the life of a girl in Chattanooga.

Your donation will impact the future of Chattanooga.

We thank you for your consideration and are happy to answer any questions you may have at your convenience.,
