Mission: Liger Leadership Academy (LLA) educates promising youth of today to develop socially conscious, entrepreneurial leaders of tomorrow. We provide a residential scholarship program for economically disadvantaged students that combines a comprehensive, internationally competitive education with an innovative STEM and entrepreneurship curriculum. Liger believes a meaningful investment in the right few will change the lives of many.
Learning Model: Liger Leadership Academy is more than a school. In addition to the essential curriculum, we educate students in project, opportunity, and experiential based learning. Liger’s innovative model has enabled our young leaders to excel beyond traditional subjects. Our students have become internationally published authors, app and digital currency developers, regionally recognized robotics engineers, and national award-winning filmmakers – all by the age of 15.
Liger’s extensive, nationwide recruitment process screens over 8,000 children. We select between 50 and 60 students who we believe have the most potential to become future change agents and leaders of Cambodia. LLA provides a full scholarship to all students including tuition, room and board, clothing, vaccinations, medical and dental care, health insurance, school supplies, and transportation. Liger’s graduates will be prepared for the rigors of international and Cambodian university as well as have the immediate skill sets and knowledge to start, develop or join a business.
At Liger Leadership Academy, we are proud of our holistic approach to Cambodia as a country. Our goal is to assist in the development of Cambodia by focusing on the young and delivering well rounded, educated and empathetic Liger graduates who have the ability, passion, and commitment to improve not only their own lives but the lives of their fellow countrymen. Our educational model includes all aspects of life and as a result, encompasses scholastic, sporting, networking, innovative and personal achievements.
