The mission of Wake Monarch Academy is to provide an accepting, supportive, safe and empowering environment for adolescents in recovery focusing on academic, personal, and professional growth to enhance quality of life.




Wake Monarch Academy is a community of learners in recovery that empowers our students to believe in themselves through the development of their faith, passion, and purpose in life.  By incorporating STEAM, trade classes, and collaborative project-based learning in an individualized learning environment, students will be prepared for academic success while developing tools and strategies for sustained, life-long recovery.




Through an individualized learning community, we believe our students can achieve sustained recovery and academic success. We are committed to diversity, equality, participation, and contributions in and around our community.




Through her own personal struggle with her son’s substance use disorder, founder Leah Wright, realized the need for resources for adolescents struggling with this disease. Through courage and strength gained from God, Leah felt led to start a school to help other adolescents find acceptance, support, and recovery in a supportive atmosphere while continuing their high school education.  Jimmy and Leah Wright developed a team to begin the process of having the Triangle’s first Recovery High School – Wake Monarch Academy.
