Our leadership model is rooted in the idea that everyone can be a leader and our evidence-based approach empowers students with the leadership and life skills they need to thrive.
We focus on developing the whole child by:
- teaching LEADERSHIP to every student,
- creating a CULTURE of student empowerment,
- and aligning systems to drive results in ACADEMICS.

7 Habits of Highly Effective People
The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People is one of the key frameworks of our leadership model. In addition to helping students learn and apply leadership skills, the 7 Habits give us a common language in building a supportive emotional environment.
4 Disciplines of Execution
The 4 Disciplines of Execution is another key framework of our leadership model that helps us to identify, track, and achieve academic and personal Wildly Important Goals (WIGs) through leadership portfolios and data walls.
Family & Community Partnerships
We recognize parents as our students’ first teachers and we thank you for your role in helping children become leaders. We invite you to use these strategies for cultivating leadership at home.
