    “The Academy for Urban Leadership Charter School has a history of providing a high-quality education to its students.” -David Hespe, Commissioner of NJ Department of Education, 2016.

    Founded in 2010 in Perth Amboy, New Jersey, the Academy for Urban Leadership Charter School is one of Middlesex County's comprehensive Public Charter Schools that serves students in seventh through twelfth grades. The school operates under the terms of a charter granted by the New Jersey Department of Education.

    When the school first opened in 2010, it did not have the books, tables, or classrooms necessary for students to be in an adequate learning environment. Even the principal, at the time, had to serve as a lunch aide. Since then, AUL has developed to help students receive the education they deserve. AUL has expanded by opening two new campuses, expecting to provide the opportunity for students to continue to succeed, with graduation and college admission as two of its goals.

    AUL offers an advanced academic track and AP courses. Access our course catalog and download the program of studies.
