Whitney M. Young Leadership Academy

Imagine a school where you can take AP high school and college courses simultaneously as part of a student body that has already distinguished itself by:

• winning 2nd place in the Cleveland Bar Association mock trial competition.
• winning 2nd place in the Rotary Club oratorical contest.
• reaching an attendance rate of 97 percent.
• posting a 100 percent graduation rate.

Whitney M. Young is one of CMSD’s high-performing school choices and has been recognized as a National Blue Ribbon School.

Beginning in grade nine, our focus is on achieving excellence on the PSAT, ACT and SAT exams. A dedicated staff will help you earn the grades and service hours required to be accepted into top colleges and universities and obtain academic scholarships to those institutions.

Along with our strong academic programs, the school offers a full range of varsity and JV sports, including volleyball, tennis, football, bowling, basketball, indoor and outdoor track, softball and baseball.

You are encouraged to express yourself artistically through programs such as gospel singing, instrumental music, dance and various visual and graphic arts courses.
