At Aspen Academy, we recognize that developing lifelong skills in organization and time management is not done in fell swoop, but takes years of mastery. Our Leadership Curriculum starts at a young age teaching basic skills, culminating in a full mastery of leadership skills that no other private, public, or independent schools offer. The Character and Leadership curriculum at Aspen encourages leadership by giving students first hand experience and opportunities to lead in a variety of ways, instead of teaching leadership from a text book.
Leadership Development at Aspen Academy Includes:
•Pre-assessments for academic, character, personal and leadership
•First week orientation and culture setting
•Annual Leadership Retreat in 1st Semester (Middle School)
•Two hours of instruction per week – hard scheduled
•AMP’d - Bi-Weekly Student-Led Assembly
•Enhanced Mentor Program
•Financial Literacy and Entrepreneurship inclusion into all Social Studies Grade Level Standards – Hard Scheduled for May/June of each year.
•Time and Organizational Management and Student Skills will be taught daily in homerooms. – Hard Scheduled
By placing such an emphasis on leadership, and including it everyday in the curriculum at Aspen Academy, students are required to give constant consideration to these principles.
"Investing unselfishly in the lives of others is the most important thing we can do for ourselves, our communities and our world."
