Leadership Academy (LA) was established to promote student leadership in the lower school.The LA seeks to build school spirit while serving the school and fellow students. Each spring fourth and fifth grade students may apply to become part of the Academy. From that group six fifth graders and two fourth graders are chosen by LS teachers to become part of the Leadership Academy Council (LAC). The LAC members will be trained and guided in developing leadership skills and abilities by a faculty advisor. They will then have the opportunity to lead the rest of the Leadership Academy in leadership training. Members of the LAC are expected to bi-attend weekly meetings to consider council business and to take part in meetings, event preparation and other activities as dictated by the advisor.
To be considered for Leadership Academy, each candidate must be registered for the upcoming year, have a servant’s attitude, a strong Christian walk, at least an 80% grade average, a supportive school spirit, good citizenship and work habits, and a good working relationship with his/her classmates and teacher.
