Leo has, along with most Indiana high schools, adopted a credit system called Core 40, requiring 40 credits — four years of English, three years of Math, Social Studies, and Science, and ten to twelve elective credits, plus two semesters of Physical Education, and a credit in Health Education. Leo also offers a slightly more rigorous Academic Honors Diploma, which requires 47 credits, and a basic one that requires 40 credits like Core 40, but lowers the bar in the Core 40 six-credit subjects to just four credits.
The mission statement of Leo Junior/Senior High School is "Where academic standards and nurturing relationships lead all students to educational and career success." This mission statement was proven accurate when, in the 2009-2010 school year, Leo was the only school in Indiana to receive National Blue Ribbon School honors.
