The Kenwood Leadership Academy will integrate all subject areas infusing leadership into virtually everything they do. Students, teachers, and staff will use the 7 Habits of Highly Effective people/Happy Kids from the Leader in Me philosophy to build leadership skills while engaging in teaching and learning. Every student will take on leadership and be exposed to the behaviors and beliefs of leaders, helping them discover their own potential. KLA will foster the growth of creativity and innovation to help students identify their passions while learning to be goal setters, problem seekers and problem solvers. Students will be empowered to take the lead in their education while developing 21st century skills and sharing their talents and skills with the community. Amazing things are possible through leadership development connected to rich learning experiences.
