The Episcopal Summer Institute's 21st Century Leaders is an exciting weeklong program for rising 7th to 9th graders looking to take on more leadership roles in their schools and communities through character-driven and service learning projects. Includes DC trips and seminars with government and business leaders.
As the world continues to require dynamic leadership to address 21st century issues, the Episcopal High School 21st Century Leaders offers a character-driven learning experience that develops students' personal values of leadership. Through classroom instruction, conversations with leaders in politics, the military, education, business, law, and more, students develop actionable leadership traits, and their own ethic and values of leadership and what it means - while equipping them with the tools to be leaders with a positive impact in their communities.
Led by Episcopal High School faculty, students explore and develop their character and leadership ethic through both classroom and experiential learning, including team-building activities, service-learning projects, and conversations with leaders in different fields, including trips into Washington, D.C., where they will visit Capitol Hill and reflect upon the historical leadership of those memorialized in monuments throughout the city. This program is designed for character-driven students who seek to make a positive impact in their communities, have a desire to learn in a fast-paced, hands-on environment, and who value experience over assessment.
