The Science Leadership Academy at Beeber is a second campus of The Science Leadership Academy, an inquiry-driven, project-based public school focused on 21st century learning. The Science Leadership Academy at Beeber opened its doors on September 9, 2013 as a high school and will welcome the first class of 5th graders in September 2018.
SLA provides a rigorous, college-preparatory curriculum with a focus on science, technology, mathematics and entrepreneurship. Students at SLA learn in a project-based environment where the core values of inquiry, research, collaboration, presentation and reflection are emphasized in all classes.
If you want to apply to BOTH SLA Campuses, you MUST add both campuses to your choice list on the High School Selection online form. If you only put one of the schools, you will NOT be considered for acceptance into the other.
Deadline for High School Selection is Monday, November 13th
Admission to SLA is based on a combination of a student interview at the school with a presentation of completed work, Advanced or Proficient PSSA scores, As and Bs with the possible exception of one C, teacher or counselor recommendation and good attendance and punctuality. Interested families must contact the school to set up an appointment for an interview. SLA will not initiate the interview process with families.
Students must select both SLA and SLA @ Beeber on their School District of Philadelphia High School Application to be considered for both sites. To access the online application, visit this site: Student Placement

The interview is a project-based interview. Students should bring a school paper or project done in 7th or 8th grade that they feel is a strong representation of who they are as a student.
