Leadership: Grade 12

Leadership in Action

Engaging as a Leader in the Community
Each Suffield senior is expected to exercise significant leadership responsibilities at school. Class time during this seminar is used primarily to reflect on and improve students’ performance in their leadership roles and responsibilities.

Senior Speaker Series
The senior speaker series is another capstone experience in the Leadership Program and further enhances Suffield’s strong sense of community. As part of the series all seniors deliver a talk to the community during the school’s weekly chapel meeting. Talks highlight how students initially learned of Suffield, how their time here has unfolded, goals for the future, and valuable lessons learned. They serve as powerful motivation and remind us of the profound impact of the Suffield experience.

Senior Seminars
Suffield’s seniors participate in a three-part seminar that serves as a concluding aspect of the school’s Leadership Program. The meetings highlight important topics for graduates as they head on to the next stage in their lives. Led by Head of School Charlie Cahn, Hillary Rockwell Cahn ’88, and CFO Patrick Booth, the seminars focus on Title IX and sexual misconduct, mindfulness, and financial awareness. Goals include understanding Title IX legistlation, helping students understand their personal financial footprints, and building strategies to manage stress.

We are reminding our seniors that we all have the tools within us to relieve anxiety and be more presently aware,
which ultimately helps us get less caught up in our thoughts.
