Children First Leadership Academy: A Great No-Cost Public Charter School in Phoenix, Arizona

The Children First Leadership Academy inspires students to be critical thinkers, problem solvers and active citizens. The school serves the whole child by providing hope, fostering strength, facilitating self-determination, and developing leadership qualities.

The Children First Leadership Academy delivers an educational leadership model with a specific attention to detail to each of its 250 K-8 students. Smaller classroom sizes and additional resources enable students to participate in a stable, stimulating, and supportive environment that instills confidence and eliminates the obstacles that might otherwise stand in the way of a quality education.

The Children First Leadership Academy recognizes that educating children requires more than a classroom, desks, and textbooks. We provide the following for our students and their families:


Our fleet of buses and vans travel hundreds of miles a day. The goal to have every child attend school on-time empowers our transportation team to change routes daily when necessary to accommodate the needs of students and their families. Students can thereby maintain consistency and stability despite changes in their living circumstances.

Food, Clothing, School Supplies, etc.

As a result of many generous community donations, our students and their families may receive clothing, shoes, school supplies, food boxes, and household items as needed free of charge.

Medical, Dental, and Other Social Services

Onsite medical and dental care is available to CFLA students and their families through partnerships with Phoenix Children’s Hospital and Brighter Way Dental of the Parsons Center for Pediatric Dentistry & Orthodontics. These services include immunizations, health screening, vision and hearing assessments, along with regular oral examinations and dental care. CFLA also offers free counseling for its students through its in-house counselor and the Phoenix Children’s Hospital Clinic on Campus. Free parenting classes are also offered through the school’s network of partners and trained professionals.
