Kenneth W Clement Boys Leadership Academy

Building the men of tomorrow, starting today!

  • Kenneth W. Clement Boys' Leadership Academy is one of the Cleveland Metropolitan School District’s few schools offering single-gender education.

    We foster a learning environment that inspires, motivates and encourages young males from Pre-K through 8th grade to achieve academic excellence while providing social & emotional support daily. We begin each day with the reciting of our creed and ritual, preparing our scholars to be successful in a culture that stresses respect, compassion for others and displays of good character.

    Our goal is to create scholars who are prepared to take active leadership roles in their high schools, universities, families and communities. It is our expectation that our scholars will become key contributors in this global society where we are building men of tomorrow, starting today.
