Principal's Message


Dear Community,

It's my privilege to serve as Principal of Manara Leadership Academy. The 2019-2020 school year brings many exciting changes and community celebrations to Manara Leadership. This past school year Manara Academy celebrated our 10th year anniversary as a district, with a ribbon cutting ceremony with the Irving Chamber of Commerce. Another amazing milestone is Manara Leadership graduated it's first group of seniors! Our seniors have been accepted into outstanding secondary education opportunities throughout the area. We wish them well in their bright futures. Additionally, Manara Leadership has been in the candidacy phase for acceptance in becoming an International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP) School. During this candidacy phase we are focusing on our academic quality, training staff and meeting facility and policy requirements for IB. As you browse through our new Manara Leadership website, I hope you will find all the information you need to find out how your student may become one of the first IBDP graduates starting with the graduating class of 2022.

Manara Leadership Academy is currently a 7-12 school (middle/high school) with growing enrollment. We are located in Irving, Texas right in the heart of the Irving Business Park where corporate offices provide internship programming and field study opportunities to our students.

If you were to ask our school community what makes Manara Leadership Academy a special place to learn and grow, it would be that we are accepting of one another's differences and uniqueness, we have students from around the world with different life perspectives and experiences and our community embraces global mindedness. If you were to inquire as to what makes Manara Leadership an outstanding place to receive an education, you would quickly come to recognize our deeply committed teaching team, offering outstanding academic opportunities to students. Please consider joining our growing school community and find out more about all of the unique opportunities that make Manara Leadership an amazing school for your child to attend.

Kindest regards,

Denise Sudan
M.A, Education Leadership
