Description of Camden Catholic’s Leadership Academy Components

The leadership academy consist of a menu of extracurricular seminars that students can choose to attend that train students in research based Positive Psychology and 21st century leadership skills. Each seminar teaches students a researched based skill-set and gives the students an opportunity to apply them in real world situations and reflect on their impact.

1. Leadership Academy Requirement: Camden Catholic believes that all of its students should receive leadership training so every student is required to attend 2 Leadership Academy seminars throughout their four years at Camden Catholic as a CCHS graduation requirement. To successfully complete a Leadership Academy seminar students must be present for the entirety of all components, complete all assigned work to a grade of 80 or higher and complete three regular self reflections; one week prior to the start, two weeks after completion and at the end of the year on the week of May 10th.

2. Leadership Academy Graduate: To become a graduate from the Leadership Academy a student must complete 1 graduate track seminar that specializes in each of the 5 values of the leadership academy (Faith, Excellence, Creativity, Unity, Passion) throughout their 4 years at Camden Catholic, and complete a Graduate Reflection (minimum of 5 seminars). Graduate track seminars are noted by the symbol ** next to their seminar code.

3. Leadership Academy Scholars: Students who wish to maximize their leadership potential can apply to take Leadership Academy Scholar Course. The Leadership Academy Scholar Course trains students in the latest Positive Psychology skill set that enables students to become experts in themselves, social interactions, and enables them to set and achieve long-term goals. The five leadership credit course in each of the 5 values consists of 12 workshops, a 3-day overnight retreat and two follow-up sessions. The course is the culminating experience of the leadership academy.  Previous participants have described the program as “life changing”, “inspiring”, “enlightening” and “fulfilling”. Successful completion of the Scholar course also meets the Leadership Academy graduate requirements.

4. Students can create their own seminars to help them standout for colleges! Colleges are looking for students who not only have a solid academic record but also are driven, creative, and take a leadership role in their community. The opportunity for students to create and lead their own seminar for other students is unique to Camden Catholic and will set them apart from other college applicants.
