College, Career, and Life Readiness

Create a culture led by high school students who can find their voice and develop critical skills to successfully navigate college, career, and life.

Many high school students quickly discover their independence, ambitions, opinions, and beliefs about oneself and the world we live in. However, some students struggle to feel a sense of belonging, purpose, and direction in their life. Leader in Me Schools create an inclusive culture led by students who are encouraged to find their voice and develop critical skills through a series of leadership courses that will help them successfully navigate college, career, and life.

The students are team players now. They’re not angry anymore. They’re not dealing with depression. You can feel it. Kids are laughing. They are greeting you. They’re not sneering and making fun of other people. It’s truly like a family environment. That’s the culture of a Leader in Me High School.
