Leadership Workshops and Retreats

All students participate in workshops throughout the year, centered on fostering core values and qualities. Each grade has their own theme, which also aligns with the grade-level themes for InterMission. In addition, specialized workshops for designated student leaders and athletics captains further develop their community and visionary leadership skills.
