Barack Obama Leadership Academy

Welcome To Obama Academy

Beginning with the 2019-2020 academic year, Timbuktu Academy changed its name to the Barack Obama Leadership Academy in honor of President Barack Obama for his leadership characteristics that inspire people across our nation and around the globe and to reflect the integration of the nationally recognized Leader in Me program. Following a rigorous and extremely competitive review process, the school was selected as a 21st Century After School program location to provide academic enrichment opportunities during non-school hours for children, particularly students residing in disadvantaged communities.


"Our children only get one chance at an education, and charter schools demonstrate what is possible when States, communities, teachers, parents and students work together."
