How do I Become a Student at PBLA?

PBLA's enrollment process begins with a recommendation to the program by a student's teachers. Applicants must exhibit a positive attitude, have good school attendance, and maintain an excellent disciplinary record in their schools. PBLA students are also expected to display a love of learning and leadership qualities in the classroom.

Along with the recommendation form, students must complete an application, and parents must provide the student's birth certificate and proof of US citizenship.

As part of the application process, students are expected to write an essay explaining their desire to be a part of Porter-Billups Leadership Academy.

After all the proper documentation has been submitted, and prior to acceptance, students will complete a one-on-one interview with the director, Staci Porter-Bentley, or PBLA's recruiter, Dominique Jefferson.
