Principal’s Corner

July 2020

Dear Leroy Greene Families and Guests,

I am Leroy Greene Academy’s Principal, Scott Fitzgerald, and I want to thank you for visiting our website. I’d like to encourage you to take a moment and explore all that LGA has to offer.  From academics to athletics and student activities there are a lot of amazing things that are happening on campus.   

Leroy Greene Academy is a dependent charter school within Natomas Unified School District and we serve 6th through 12th grade. We were founded in 2012 with a focus on two unique pathways Business Entrepreneurship and Visual Arts. Students can expect to take courses within both of these pathways in middle school and then choose a focus when they enter high school.

Leroy Greene Academy has so much to offer its students. We offer an Advisory program on campus designed to provide additional support to our students and to also help bridge the communication gap with our families.  Last year LGA was one in two hundred schools nationwide to pilot a Pre-AP program which is designed to provide our students the skills necessary to succeed in advanced placement courses if they choose to take one. We offer an array of Advanced Placement courses as well as many fun and unique courses. Next year LGA will become an AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination) school. This is a program designed to change lives by helping shift to a more equitable, student-centered approach. AVID can help prepare all students for college, careers, and life. We are beyond excited to see where this program will take our students.

My love for Leroy Greene Academy is truly indescribable. I was a founding staff member and the only social science teacher when we opened our doors back in 2012. I believe together we have created one of the most unique and successful campuses in the Sacramento Region. You don’t have to take my word for it, all you have to do is ask our students who will be the first to tell you that being an LGA lion is like being part of a family. This is why we lovingly refer to ourselves as the PRIDE. LGA has also been recognized by the US News and Review as one of the top high schools in California for the last two years. I am beyond proud to continue to serve our community and LGA as its Principal.

Please contact our office if you have questions, need support, or simply want to get involved with our PRIDE! 

Thank you for stopping in to visit our LGA website, and as always thanks for being part of the Pride!
