College Applications and many jobs require students to have demonstrated leadership abilities. One avenue for these experiences will be through our College and Career Academies (CCAs). Each CCA will have an elected president, vice-president, and other officer positions. The CCAs will vie for incentives from the principal by competing against each other in areas such as community service hours and projects, coordinating different school functions, supporting our athletic teams, etc.
Students can also demonstrate their leadership capacity each year as they complete a required yearly community-service project. The difficulty of and expectations for these experiences will vary by age and grade of the student. Younger students will be responsible for classroom-level projects, older students for school-level, and still older students for community-impacting service projects.
