Martin Luther King Academy’s motto ? “Creating tomorrow’s leaders through preparation today” ? is fulfilled by offering students a strong foundation in academics, literacy and technology, combined with public service. Opportunities to develop leadership qualities are augmented through partnerships with businesses, community organizations and volunteer agencies.

In addition, the K-8 configuration of the Martin Luther King Academy has substantial social and academic benefits for students in general. Among these are continuity of parent involvement through the middle school years; minimal school transitions that tend to set students back both academically and developmentally; eased family lives by extending the number of years that siblings can attend school together; extension of the more nurturing, supportive, familial environment of the elementary school to students during their developmentally challenging middle school years; and leadership opportunities for older students as they tutor, mentor and set a good example for younger students. Research indicates that students from K-8 schools are generally well adjusted and well prepared to take on the challenges of their transition to high school.
