Box Tops for Education
Leake Academy has the opportunity to participate in Box Tops for Education. This is a fundraising program sponsored by General Mills, Inc. to help schools across the United States. Our school can earn cash through this program. Each Box Top is worth 10 cents to our school. Please clip the Box Top coupons located on most General Mills products, put them in a plastic bag or envelope and send them back to school with your child who can then place the bag in our drop box located outside the elementary computer lab. A list of products that have Box Top coupons can be found at www.boxtopsforeducation.com.
Leake Academy operates under the control and direction of a Parent-Teacher Organization member-elected Board of Directors. The school is administered by Leake Academy INC., a Mississippi non-profit corporation, which is responsible for all decisions as to faculty, programming, admissions, and all other decisions necessary to the operation of the school.
Leake Academy is fully accredited and its teachers are certified by the Mississippi Association of Independent Schools.
