The Leona Group, a family of professionals working to raise the bar in public education, was formed in 1996 in Michigan by Dr. William Coats, a nationally recognized leader in education reform.
The Leona Group currently manages over 50 school sites in Arizona, Indiana, Michigan and Ohio and is one of the largest education service providers in the United States.
The Leona Group stands firmly on the foundation and belief that all children, regardless of ethnicity or economic status, can learn and achieve. This belief permeates throughout the organization and is vibrant in each Leona-managed school.
Our organization is proudly named after Dr. Coats' mother, Leona, whose educational experiences were limited because of societal expectations in the small Ohio rural town that she grew up in.
