Leadership Academy is the culminating opportunity of the Lake Highland's continuum to develop leaders who will make an impact. 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, and leadership reaction courses fill the days as well as caving, hiking, camping, and of course, fellowship and bonding. The ultimate goal is to empower this influential group of young men and women to lead a culture of accountability and exemplary character back on our campus.
