Leadership Academy @ North Gaston High School
About the Academy
In high school, students discover their independence, ambitions, goals, opinions, and beliefs. The Leadership Academy provides academic and extracurricular opportunities to support students as they find their voice and discover a lot about themselves and the world around them.
With the motto that “every child can be a leader” as the guiding principle, students engage in coursework and collaborative activities that help them realize that they possess the potential to be an outstanding leader at school, in their community, and in life beyond graduation.
As part of the “Leader in Me” model, students learn about empowerment, responsibility, integrity, vision, and teamwork/collaboration, which are qualities found in an effective leader. Additionally, students learn how to handle challenges that teenagers face, and they gain a sense of purpose, belonging, and direction in life.
Students from outside the North Gaston attendance area who will be in the ninth grade for the 2023-2024 school year may apply for this program. A lottery process will be used to determine the 40 ninth grade students who will attend (from outside the North Gaston attendance area).
