RADNOR, Pa. (August 10, 2017)—Nearly 60 high school students spent a week at college after being accepted to the High School Leadership Academy at Cabrini University.
Local and international students attended the five-day program that provided an in-depth understanding on leadership and community impact.
During the program, students participated in activities that focused on team building, communication, group dynamics, and understanding how best to support their communities. For their final project, students presented an action plan which applied what they learned to advancing their community. Each student received a certificate at the completion of the program.
The Nerney Leadership Institute and Office of Educational Partnerships at Cabrini University hosted the event July 10–15. Students were accepted to the program based on their academic standing, involvement in high school activities and programs, and a school counselor recommendation.
The High School Leadership Academy was made possible thanks to the generous support from John Chappell, a member of the Nerney Leadership Institute’s Advisory Council.
