Silver Creek's Leadership Academy celebrated its 3rd Capstone Project Expo on Monday, December 12.
The focus of the Leadership Academy is to help students gain hands-on leadership experience and build skills related to ethics, communication, critical and creative thinking, respect, vision and teamwork. There are currently 325 students in the program from grades 9 to 12.
Before graduating with a certificate from the Leadership Academy, Seniors are required to complete a capstone project of their choosing. Using their own interests and community outreach, each student designs a course of action and follows through with all aspects of project management, applying the three previous years of classroom experience into a real world situation.
In the past two years of SCLA Capstone Projects, students have volunteered over 20,000 hours and donated over $12,000 to organizations.
