The goal of Suffield Academy's Leadership Program is to develop human beings with integrity who wish to make a significant and positive impact on our society. Students in grades 9, 10, and 11 take required year-long courses where the curriculum emphasizes experiential learning and guided self-discovery. The leadership experience at Suffield concludes in the 12th-grade, with each student participating in senior seminars and a senior speaker series.
The program emphasizes seven core elements which each student is exposed to in direct ways: personal mastery, moral foundation, goal-setting, communication skills, problem-solving, self-awareness, and inspiring and mobilizing others. We teach ways of thinking and developing skills, traits, and habits in order to enhance each student’s leadership qualities and capabilities.
