Be sure to view our public school profile for iLEAD Exploration (our official charter name is iLEAD Hybrid). Since opening five years ago, we have built a solid charter school option for all types of learners!
High school learners are required to take core academic classes along with some electives, depending on their particular graduation path. Elective classes are a way to prepare them for the working world and impress colleges with their transcripts. But above all, these classes can make a huge difference in their lives.
Elective classes provide a lot of room for personalization and creativity. iLEAD’s approved vendors offer our high schoolers a buffet of choices. Our learners can customize their elective classes based on their interests. Here are some examples:
Model United Nations, also known as Model UN or MUN, is an extracurricular activity in which learners typically role-play delegates to the United Nations and simulate UN committees. Click here to learn more. Our vendor Urban Homeschoolers offers MUN at their LA center.
Nautical Studies at Sea Base: Are you interested in sailing, scuba diving, rustic camping on an undeveloped barrier island, fishing, or a combination of these? Learn more about the programs offered here.
iLEAD Online offers classes in film, work experience, entrepreneurship and more!

Learners had a wonderful time learning about animal rescue and care at The Gentle Barn. This field trip teaches young people how to lovingly care for animals of all types and sizes.
From hugging cows to feeding horses to holding chickens, our learners experienced firsthand why it is important to treat animals with dignity.
