Chick-fil-A Leader Academy
We're Re-imagining High School Leadership! Palmetto Christian Academy is pleased to announce that we are bringing the Chick-fil-A Leader Academy to our school in 2018-2019!
The Leader Academy is a national high school leadership program focused on IMPACT THROUGH ACTION. The world needs more leaders who impact their local communities, and we believe high school students are the answer! The Chick-fil-A Leader Academy brings a fresh approach to leadership and empowers young people to make a difference.
This is a year-long curriculum, taught once per month for approximately one hour. Up to 30 students, grades 9-12, will be selected to participate after an application process. The program engages students with a monthly "Leader Lab" focusing on important leadership skills including vision and values, servant leadership, teamwork, communication, and innovation and impact. Throughout the program, students plan an "impact project," which is the culmination of the program. The community impact project is student-planned and student-led.
Middle School Leadership Class
The Middle School Leadership Class at PCA is designed to help students understand and explore their unique abilities to lead and the characteristics needed to become a Christian leader. They will study the leadership qualities of Biblical and secular leaders. The students will also be exposed to other topics including absolute truths, what it means to be a Child of God, how to submit to authority, how to control the tongue, and how they can be a good influence to those they come in contact with.
