LeAnn Elder is the Head of School in the Boca Raton location of Score Academy. She is a licensed architect with a B.S. from The University of Virginia and a Master's in Architecture from Harvard University. She studied abroad in Vicenza, Italy while at UVA. At both UVA and Harvard, LeAnn was chosen for a variety of Teaching Assistantships, including a unique opportunity to teach an architecture program to middle school girls. As a result, she went on to design and teach a summer architecture program for high school students while attending Harvard. Her passion for teaching led to community service projects, which included introducing inner-city children to architecture with the help of the Baltimore City Arts Council. Since arriving in Florida, she has taught at FAU, and has passed her Florida teaching exams for all middle school subjects, high school math, technology, and health.
As an architect, LeAnn designed a contemporary-style house that was featured in a magazine and has worked for firms in both Maryland and Florida. Her background in architecture accounts for her attention to detail and ability to make certain that disparate pieces come together to form a unified whole, no matter what the scale.
Beyond her own lifelong commitment to education and extracurricular activities, including her current interests in playing the piano and lifting weights, she is a mother of two who loves mentoring her own children. They love to learn, play the piano and swim competitively on a swim team. Motherhood for LeAnn brought a shift of emphasis from the computer-dominated world of architecture to those qualities that touched on what she was truly passionate about – education and children.
LeAnn came to Score At The Top with an enthusiasm to succeed and a strong belief in our mission. She was originally hired as the Center Director and Head of School but after 4 years of extraordinary success and growth, she now concentrates solely on Score Academy. She is extremely passionate about our school and leads all of our full-time enrolled students and part-time course for credit students. LeAnn’s position as Head of School has allowed her to fully optimize her strong and enthusiastic commitment to growing and further developing Score Academy and helping to reach as many students as possible. LeAnn oversees all of our professional teaching staff, working collaboratively with our parents, students, and teachers to ensure top-quality educational and support services for our students and their families.
