What is LEAD Charter School?

LEAD is the first charter of its kind in New Jersey, designed with opportunity youth in mind. Young people can pursue reconnection at LEAD through job training, certifications and opportunities to a brighter future. LEADers are surrounded by a network of community resources to ensure their success. And as an SBIRT site — or Screening, Brief Intervention and Referral to Treatment — we’re fostering a culture of sobriety that will stick with our young people far beyond graduation.

At LEAD, we’re molding leaders who transform themselves, their families, and their community.
