One of the leading public schools embracing inquiry-driven, project-based learning is the Science Leadership Academy (SLA) in Philadelphia. It is a partnership between the School District of Philadelphia and The Franklin Institute. SLA provides a rigorous, college-preparatory curriculum focused on science, technology, mathematics and entrepreneurship. The first high school opened in Center City Philadelphia in 2006 and a second campus, SLA-Beeber, opened in the fall of 2013. SLA has a total enrollment of 700 students.
Founding principal Chris Lehmann and his team have created a dynamic teaching and learning community based on the core values of inquiry, research, collaboration, presentation, and reflection. These core values are integrated into all aspects of the school from the curriculum to admissions and hiring practices.
