About the Program

 



The Leadership Academy fosters the academic success, personal growth, and social development of our middle school students through service to their communities. Our leadership curriculum uses the real world as a classroom in which students develop as leaders who take initiative, solve problems, work as a team, and demonstrate their abilities while addressing real community needs. The community is our textbook, helping to expand our students’ academic and leadership skills as they become future leaders of the world around them.

In middle school, our task is to prepare our students to succeed.   In AVID, students are given the support and instruction they need to learn how to study, manage time, organize materials, set goals, and investigate their future college and career options. AVID provides the necessary support for students who might otherwise not aspire to go to college. By being enrolled in rigorous classes with the tutorial support provided in the AVID Leadership Class, student's grade point averages rise, increasing numbers of students enroll in honors classes and algebra in eighth grade.  AVID motivates students and provides the skills and confidence to reach their goals.

 

Leadership students also have an additional elective in one of three areas
