10th and 11th Grade Students:

We are looking for students who would like to participate in this year’s inaugural Principal’s Leadership Academy sponsored by Chick-fil-A. This opportunity is part of a national high school leadership program focused on IMPACT THROUGH ACTION. It’s creators hope to bring a fresh approach to leadership and empower young people to make a difference. By participating in this year-long program, we hope to build the leadership capacity of students at our own school.

LEARN AND LEAD
Many leadership programs focus on only the “learn” part, transferring information through speakers, seminars and books. The result is often short-term motivation and long-term frustration. This academy is unique. It provides opportunities for action with a focus on leadership skills and provides a platform through Impact Projects for students to lead.

IMPACTFUL FOR STUDENTS
Our school will select a small group of students to participate in monthly Leader Labs using a unique web-based curriculum. With the guidance of Mr. Mellin, these students learn principles and gain insights that allow them to involve their peers in order to impact the community.

HOW IT WORKS
Through a unique Engage-Expose-Equip approach, the academy involves students in a 7-month curriculum where they learn valuable leadership lessons, culminating in an end-of-program Impact Project. Each session will take place after school, so students must have a way to get home after the meetings.
