Miami’s Trusted Academy for the Future Leaders of Our Community
Diamond Minds Transformational Leadership Academy is a leading private school in Florida, with locations in Miami, Miami Gardens, and Fort Lauderdale. We serve children in preschool, elementary, middle school, and high school providing a holistic and cohesive educational experience as they grow. To ensure students receive the highest quality education, the curriculum is student-centered, culturally-relevant, and rigorous. Students learn in small, multi-age classes, contributing to the development of leadership skills, acceptance of diversity, and independent learning.
Academic achievement is an essential element in the philosophy of our school. Students develop a strong sense of self through activities that encourage balance of mind, body, and spirit. Our school facilitates the development of rigorous analytical thinking through tasks which introduce and enrich the core subjects (math, science, humanities, literacy and language arts) through experiential learning that embraces multiple intelligences and promotes a love of life-long learning. We combine these fundamentals with a deep dive into the arts, including music, dance, theater, and visual arts, providing a comprehensive background that nurtures ingenuity, creativity, and a passion for learning among our students.
Despite its private status, the school is populated primarily by students who traditionally receive free and reduced lunch. This is possible because of scholarship programs such as Step Up for Students and McKay, as well as internal scholarships supported by donations and fundraising efforts. We encourage you to apply if you are considering enrolling your child!
Diamond Minds was established in 2003 as an after-school program to provide academic support to students whose parents worked during after-school hours and could not afford tutoring. The program targeted students with academic difficulties in an effort to improve standardized test scores, prevent summer learning loss, and provide a caring space for fostering students’ social, physical, and academic growth.
In 2008, we opened Diamond Minds Transformational Leadership Academy, a private school designed to enhance the educational experiences of students and their families in the Greater Miami area. Since then, the school has grown to one of the most unique educational institutions, specializing in creating unique and magical learning experiences for students of all ages.
