LEADERSHIP IS NOT A SINGULAR SKILL OR ABILITY, NOR IS IT SOLELY INNATE.

Many schools discuss the importance of leadership training, but at Suffield Academy we have fully established programs for all students to develop leadership skills. In 2002, Suffield embarked on an ambitious project to bring formal leadership studies to the academic program. 

The aim of the Leadership Program is to develop human beings with integrity who wish to make a significant and positive impact on society. Our graduates will have the capacity to define and achieve meaningful goals and dreams. We will teach ways of thinking and develop skills, traits, and habits in order to enhance each student’s leadership qualities and capabilities. Core elements of the program include life skills, moral foundation, goal-setting, communication skills, successful problem-solving, self-awareness and inspiring others.
