    6. SLA Mission Statement• "How do we learn?"• "What can we create?"• "What does it mean to lead?"These three essential questions form the basis of instruction at the Science Leadership Academy(SLA), a Philadelphia high school opened in September 2006. SLA is built on the notion that inquiry isthe very first step in the process of learning. Developed in partnership with The Franklin Instituteand its commitment to inquiry-based science, SLA provides a rigorous, college-preparatorycurriculum with a focus on science, technology, mathematics and entrepreneurship. Students at SLAlearn in a project-based environment where the core values of inquiry, research,collaboration, presentation and reflection are emphasized in all classes.The structure of the Science Leadership Academy reflects its core values, with longer class periodsto allow for more laboratory work in science classes and performance-based learning in all classes. Inaddition, students in the upper grades have more flexible schedules to allow for opportunities fordual enrollment programs with area universities and career development internships in laboratoryand business settings, as well as with The Franklin Institute.At SLA, learning is not just something that happens from 8:30am to 3:00pm, but a continuousprocess that expands beyond the four walls of the classroom into every facet of our lives.
