College launches High School Leadership Academy
SHREVEPORT, LA — Centenary College is offering a unique opportunity for rising high school juniors and seniors this summer called the High School Leadership Academy. Held on campus July 17-20, the Academy is designed for students who demonstrate leadership potential and a spirit of service.
"The Leadership Academy will get young people out of the classroom and show them how to translate learning into action," said Dr. Edward Ragan, Director of Educational Outreach. "We want to empower them to affect change in their community and in their lives."
The Academy will offer expert-led discussion, special guest speakers, and hands-on experience in practical leadership skills to meet global challenges. Centenary alumni and faculty who are themselves passionate about their professions and making a difference in the local community will lead workshops and sessions.
"The High School Leadership Academy is an incredible opportunity for high school students to begin thinking about their passion and desire to make a difference in the world before college," said Valerie Robideaux, Centenary’s Director of Professional Discernment. "Through this experience, students will be able to prepare for college with a greater awareness of the challenges of our world and how they can pursue a meaningful career."
Rising high school juniors and seniors with leadership experience and a strong interest in the program are encouraged to apply online. The early registration deadline is May 15, and space is limited.
Tuition includes lodging and all meals as well as snacks, supplies, and other activities. For more information on program and costs, visit the High School Leadership Academy's Program Logistics page.
