Now Enrolling Grades K-12!

Leading Edge Academy received an ‘A’ and the top score of all Maricopa Schools!


Founded in 2002 by Delmer Geesey, a pastor with the vision of starting a top-notch traditional education program, Leading Edge Academy schools began with 17 students. Through word of mouth by satisfied parents, the school began to grow each year. In 2010 The Leading Edge Charter Network took this successful format and expanded to Maricopa. The Leading Edge Charter Network continues to expand and currently has other school sites in East Mesa, Queen Creek, Gilbert and our virtual Online Academy.



“Leading Edge Academy Maricopa has given my children a wonderful place to learn. The staff is so kind and compassionate and has always dealt with issues in a loving and timely manner. I love the Character Pledge and that the school encourages parents and students to live by it. Mr. Reese has always been willing to talk with me and has a noticeable presence with the children. Leading Edge has exceeded my expectations.”
