National Heritage Academies partners with local school boards to build and manage no-cost public charter schools. NHA’s system of schools is designed to eliminate the achievement gap and provide a public school choice to families so that their children are prepared for success in high school, college, and beyond.


During our 12-year tenure as the Agency of Record for NHA, LE&A essentially served as NHA’s internal PR/communications team, providing critical support in a wide array of areas. The number of media stories LE&A generated for NHA increased substantially over the years as the firm built out its team, solidified the local market PR process and established strong relationships with schools and local media.
