Curriculum 

At Qatar Leadership Academy we believe that every cadet requires an education that will broaden their course selections as they get into high school and thus their career choices beyond secondary schooling. We are committed to foster individual and group success in accordance with the principles of Qatar Leadership Academy.

The subjects offered at QLA are part of the US diploma. The courses being offered fall into two main categories: compulsory and elective. Only 11 and 12 grade students have choice of electives. All other electives are a requirement and help to provide our cadets with a strong foundation enabling them success in the high school years.  

Learning service is a core component of the school leadership program and is embedded in our daily school activities and yearly schedule. Students undertake activities every year in every grade to show commitment to their community and understanding the importance of being active citizens.
