Our program on leadership is accomplished predominantly through a grade level approach. Under the leadership of the Grade Level Chair, the grade level advisors and faculty consider the overall goals of the program, the specific nature and personality of each class, and the needs within the student body as a whole in a given year and develop formal and informal activities to develop the leadership potential within each boy. In addition to the goals presented below, we offer a leadership workshop in August for all elected student leaders, including team captains.
- Grade 9 - Self and Class: The focus is upon the individual student understanding himself and his ability to lead, recognizing the various forms of leadership, and upon beginning to build class unity.
- Grade 10 - Class and School: The focus is upon continuing to unify the class and having students begin to recognize the importance of being part of the School or community (having individuals see beyond themselves and value being part of something larger than themselves).
- Grade 11 - School and Community: The focus is upon further developing student leadership within the School community and having students begin to recognize the need to take that leadership beyond and into the greater community.
- Grade 12 - Community and Self: The focus is upon continuing to develop student leadership within the School community and having students take that leadership beyond and into the greater community while also reflecting and recognizing the changes and development within themselves during their years in the Upper School.
