High school students desire an outlet to learn and lead. Most programs that transfer information with speakers, seminars, or books offer short-term motivation but long-term frustration without an outlet for action. Chick-fil-A Leader Academy engages students in monthly Leader Labs with a focus on important leadership skills that they will use to create student-led Community Impact Projects.
30 selected students participate in monthly Leader Labs using unique CURRICULUM TECHNOLOGY with a faculty leader to gain insight and principles, then involve hundreds in their school and IMPACT THOUSANDS in their community!
Teachers engage students in highly INTERACTIVE CURRICULUM equiring little planning and MINIMUM EFFORT, which takes students on a journey leading to their leadership growth and MAXIMUM RESULTS.
Through Chick-fil-A generosity, there may be SCHOLARSHIPS AVAILABLE for first year tuition, as well as POTENTIAL SUPPORT or involvement each year to offset the annual $1,500 per school tuition.
Through a unique Engage-Expose-Equip approach, Chick-fil-A Leader Academy involves 30 students per school
in a seven-month curriculum where they learn valuable leadership lessons, ultimately culminating in Impact Projects.
Chick-fil-A Leader Academy’s mission is to inspire students, transform schools, and impact communities!
The Chick-fil-A Leader Academy web platform is specifically designed to aid teachers in guiding students through weekly Leader Labs.
With Impact Projects, students apply the principles they learned to create positive change in their community.
