At MLK, we are family. 

Located in southeast Grand Rapids, Martin Luther King Jr. Leadership Academy features state-of-the-art classrooms, collaborative learning spaces, and a beautiful Library/Media Center. 

We have an outstanding, dedicated team of educators and support staff who care for each scholar, their families, and each other. 

Offering a safe and secure environment, we strive to ensure that all scholars have an enriching and engaging learning experience. By encouraging growth academically, behaviorally, and socially, we allow our scholars the opportunity to thrive as learners and as citizens. We celebrate this growth and success throughout the year. 

We have incorporated distance learning for years and are poised to be a leader in the district as a blended model of new technologies and old practices, giving our students the best of both worlds. Our 1-to-1 student technology device approach ensures that every student has the opportunity to learn inside and outside the classroom.
