FLA's 7th Annual 5K Run/Walk for Excellence
Sat, May 20, 2017, 9:00 AM – 1:00 PM EDT
Fulton Leadership Academy (FLA), Georgia’s first single-gender public charter school for boys, is seeking your support for our “7th Annual 5k Walk/Run for Excellence.” The event will be held on Saturday, April 29, 2017, from 8 a.m.-1 p.m.
FLA’s Annual 5k Walk/Run for Excellence is FLA’s largest fundraiser. The route takes participants through the FLA campus and the neighboring community. Last year we had tremendous support from the local community and we are targeting greater participation this year by inviting several notable community leaders from the civic, corporate, education, entertainment and private sectors to assist us in supporting our cause. We would be honored to have you join us!
FLA’s 2017 goal is to raise $100,000 for our worthy, enduring cause – preparing our next generation of male scholars for college, and then on to becoming independent, productive, innovative and revered citizens in a global society. All proceeds will benefit our academic program and its continued growth.
Established in 2009 as a 501c3, FLA opened its doors to its first 80 students in August 2010. The school has now grown to almost 400 scholars. This growth necessitated the acquisition of our newest home, the former Atlanta Christian College campus located at 2575 Dodson Road in East Point, Georgia.
FLA’s high-performing, tuition-free campus integrates research-driven methods and a focus on STEM (Science Technology Engineering and Mathematics) education to transform the academic lives of our young men. In accordance with our mission, we will graduate our first class of students in May – the Class of 2017. Most importantly, several of these students have received scholarships to further their education.
As a state public charter school, FLA is funded at approximately half the level of a traditional public school in Metro-Atlanta. Nevertheless, our scholars have consistently performed well academically. In 2016, through the “Adopted School” initiative, FLA partnered with the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), to educate and expose scholars to aviation and the aerospace industry. The school has also joined ranks locally with Georgia Institute of Technology (Georgia Tech) in efforts of creating more opportunities for African American male scientists and engineers.
