What do you call a new class that's not really a new class?
Why, Junior Leadership, of course!
There are already eight Junior Leadership programs in Gwinnett County Public Schools, but this will be the first one offered at Summit Academy. For boys and girls, 6th grade and older, this is an opportunity to learn important life skills:
Self-Discipline and Respect
These are primary values taught in Junior Leadership. When a young person can control their behavior and have respect for others, they will be in a better position for success with daily choices.
Class concepts taught will enhance students' abilities to interact with others students, family, and individuals within the community.
Using project-based learning, students will help organize and lead projects in the community. Participation in food drives, outreach to elderly, or clean-up of public places, are just some examples of projects we may choose to participate in during the course of the year.
Students will learn basic military drills and have the opportunity to compete in Raider and Drill competitions with other Junior Leadership programs in Gwinnett County Public School system. (This is a 1st for our homeschooling community! Never before have homeschoolers been invited to compete with public schools in this area.)
We need students (cadets) in order to compete and represent our community well. Join us this year as we start a wonderful JLC program at Summit Academy!
