Texas Leadership Charter Academy was formed from a private Christian school belonging to the Tree of Life Church. With over 40 years of experience, the private school provided quality education to students in and around the San Angelo, Texas area. As Senior Pastor of Tree of Life Church, Dr. Walt Landers, wanted to provide the private school’s nurturing academic environment to as many students as possible without charging tuition. His vision was to provide quality education and allow parents the opportunity to make an educational choice regardless of their ability to pay. Following the enactment of Charter School Legislature, Dr. Landers realized that a charter school was just the avenue he needed to fulfill his vision. Through the help of friends, educators and other countless professionals the charter was drafted and approved by the Texas Education Agency in November of 2008.
In 2009, Texas Leadership Charter Academy opened its doors with 84 faculty and staff members to serve 600 students and their families. Testimonies from parents to friends, neighbors and co-workers have fueled rapid growth. It is through the vision of Founder/CEO, Dr. Landers that Texas Leadership Charter Academy has now grown to four campuses serving thousands of students across the state of Texas.
Texas Leadership Charter Academy seeks to develop leaders with the necessary skills to achieve success in the 21st century. Through establishing strong academics, character training, and parenting programs, Texas Leadership Charter Academy has experienced success but believes the BEST is yet to come!
