The initial areas of emphasis in the Suffield Academy Leadership Program are personal skill-building and group dynamics. We then turn the focus to self-assessment and understanding different leadership styles. Lastly, we underscore the overarching importance of having a significant and positive impact on society. Students in grades 9, 10, and 11 take required year-long leadership courses where the curriculum emphasizes experiential learning and guided self-discovery. The leadership experience at Suffield concludes in the 12th-grade, when every senior holds at least one formal leadership position and present a personal speech to the community. During spring term, the future graduates participate in a seminar program that focuses on topics such as financial awareness, digital footprints, and Title IX.
