The Leadership Project

The Leadership Project is an exciting opportunity that helps students  develop non-academic skills such as innovation, empathy, ethics, and creativity. All SHS students will undertake four-year Leadership Projects based on their individual passions and interests, in or out of school, and on their desired impact on the world.



The goal of the Leadership Project is to develop students’ leadership and advocacy skills while raising their awareness and support for someone or something they care about in our community.


The Leadership Project is entirely student driven and will be integrated into class work by teachers whenever possible. During their junior year, students will share their projects with first-year students to showcase their leadership projects and, it is hoped, to connect with a ninth-grade student who shares the same passion and can continue the project.
