Military and Global Leadership 

The Military and Global Leadership Academy at Marie G. Davis provides a rigorous, traditional academic learning environment for students.  The program is NOT a boot camp but is designed to develop students’ problem-solving, leadership, creative and critical thinking skills in a structured, military-themed school atmosphere.  Students in this program are instilled with a sense of responsibility through community service.  They develop an understanding of geography, politics, and economics to gain global perspectives and become better prepared to understand and choose post-secondary educational opportunities.

Entrance Requirements: Students interested in applying must submit a letter of interest and participate in a placement interview prior to the end of the lottery application period.  Late interviews will be conducted after this date on a space-available basis, and these students will become part of the wait pool.  Students entering the Academy may not have been previously retained in middle or high school and must be promoted at the end of the school year in which the application is made.
