Leigh Wilson, Executive Director

Leigh is a Washington State native who came to Idaho in 1984 as a gymnast for Boise State. Leigh studied education and business, with an emphasis in k-12 education. She has spent the past 27 years as an independent business owner. Her passion is education and coached well over 2,000 athletes, many reaching national and international levels. Most recently she has been a managing partner of Boise’s Best Real Estate. She is married and has a son who is a graduate of Sheridan Academy and is now Director of Operations at Best Homes Network.

Leigh and her husband Larry enjoy golfing, traveling and have the added bonus of helping raise their grandson Devin. Leigh’s desire is to make Sheridan Academy top of mind in the Treasure Valley Community. When parents think of a school that prepares students for higher education and the “real world”, while at the same time, keeping the needs of each individual child the highest priority, Leigh wants Sheridan Academy to be the only call that they need to make.
