Leadership Academy is the culminating opportunity of Lake Highland Prep's continuum to develop leaders who affect positive change in the world. The program is open to all rising juniors and seniors who are up for a challenge! The journey begins with an intense week-long training at Outdoor Odyssey Leadership Academy in Boswell, Pennsylvania, and is designed to challenge students mentally, emotionally, physically, and spiritually. The motto, “Growth through Adventure,” is an accurate depiction of what we aspire to do on the mountain: nurture our students’ growth and development as they face shared adversity. Students, along with faculty mentors, participate in tasks designed to inspire teamwork, selflessness, enthusiasm, and genuine concern—leadership qualities we desire to see in all our students. High ropes, obstacle courses, and leadership discussions fill the days—as well as caving, hiking, camping, and of course, fellowship and bonding. The ultimate goal of the Leadership Academy experience is to empower young Highlander men and women to lead a culture of accountability and exemplary character back on our campus.
