We Are The Foundation For Community Education

Who We Are

Leading Edge Educational Foundation is a non-profit organization committed to providing educational opportunities for the growth and advancement of youth and adult learners.  Our programs are structured to re-engage students who have been struggling academically, to improve retention and graduation rates, to prepare students for college, to promote childhood literacy, and to assist adults in preparation for the workforce. Based upon the demographics of the community, we strive to construct an educational foundation within youth and adults; thus resulting in a lineage of lifelong learners.
