Past participants have focused on moving our communities to being healthy, economically vigorous and environmentally sustainable. Using the expertise of faculty and the rich array of multimedia tools on campus, participants created an original documentary video that explored where their communities are today and what they might be in the near future.
In addition to developing and applying leadership skills, students will gain experience in conducting field research, persuasive storytelling, digital video editing and movie making.
You also have the opportunity to expand your leadership skills through interactive sessions in which values, integrity and commitment to action are explored.
The academy incorporates scholarship, stewardship and leadership to prepare the next generation of leaders for a changing world. It is made possible through a generous gift from The Dow Chemical Company.
The High School Leadership Academy is a residential program for students completing their junior year of high school.
