Leadership Seminar Program

At several meetings throughout the year, the Scholar Leader Academy will host a guest speaker to address the topic of leadership from his or her unique career vantage point. Scholar Leaders will work in small groups to identify and analyze the key leadership themes of each address.

Tutoring Program

The Scholar Leader Academy tutoring program was established in 2013 as a service project for SLA. Scholar Leaders are required to participate in the program and offer tutoring to fellow students. In 2014, members of the National Honor Society teamed with the SLA to expand the number of available tutors.
