Central to the education philosophy at the Future Leaders Institute Charter School is the belief that strong teaching in a caring environment, combined with an intensive and extended school day, will empower children to become the leaders of tomorrow.

The school utilizes assessment-driven instruction based on formal and informal evaluation of individual students' needs and strengths.
