The movie tells the story of Ava (May) who arrives at her new school as a transfer student and gains instant popularity when she makes the cheerleading squad after trying out at the insistence of her overly-ambitious mother, Candice (Richards). Ava is befriended by head-cheerleader and Homecoming Queen, Katrina, but learns that joining the squad comes at a price as Katrina puts the girls through a brutal initiation process that leads to consequences for Ava both at home and at school.

Directed by Peter Sullivan (Secret Obsession, Christmas Made to Order) and written by Anna White (Sister of the Bride, Christmas Wonderland), The Secret Life of Cheerleaders also stars Alexandria DeBerry (A.N.T. Farm, Shake It Up) as Katrina, and soap opera alum Josie Davis, who once played Grace Turner on Young and Restless, as Ms. Sinclair.
