TAGOS Leadership Academy is a Free Public Charter School Serving Students in Grades 7 - 12. Our school currently builds relationships with and educates 72 students, all of which attend based on their selection in either our first Friday in June or first Friday in January bi-annual lotteries. To be eligible for the TAGOS lottery, students must turn in an application prior to the lottery date. It is highly recommended you scroll to the bottom of this page and download the TAGOS Application, fill it out, and then call us to schedule a visit (with your son or daughter) and become familiar with our students, staff, and philosophy.
Thank you for your interest in TAGOS Leadership Academy.
"I love TAGOS because I have the freedom to learn at my own pace and I will learn the things I am interested in that will be used in my daily life now and in the future. This was not an option in a traditional school. TAGOS fits my needs perfectly."
-Sarah, Sophomore (2008-09)
"At TAGOS I work better because I do projects on topics that interest me and there are less people. I also find that TAGOS students and staff are more accepting than the traditional schools."
-Luke, Freshman (2008-09)
"TAGOS allows me to learn what I want to learn about."
-Brendan, Freshman (2008-09)

-Kayla, Junior (2008-09)
"TAGOS gives me a different way of learning and allows me opportunities to learn at my own pace. I do not feel like I am in a rush when working at TAGOS."
