Welcome to the Leadership Academy

  • Students may take 1, 2, 3, or 4 years as an elective credit in sequence. Leadership topics include communication skills, understanding individual and group behavior, leadership theory, personnel management, responsible citizenship, and planning one’s future.

    Academic topics include history of flight, civil aviation, military aviation, weather, flight principles, navigation, flight physiology, space technology, aerospace propulsion systems, wellness and careers in aerospace. 1 JROTC credit may also be substituted for the required physical education credit.

    Students will perform drill and ceremonies once a week. Additionally, one day per week will be dedicated to fitness. Curriculum-in-action trips to civilian and military aerospace facilities are offered to all students. These courses have specific dress and grooming standards as well as the requirements to wear the Air Force uniform one day each week.

    Students can volunteer to be on the drill, color guard, and marksmanship teams as well as the model rocket, aircraft, and drone clubs. Uniforms and books are free and are provided by the Air Force. Taking these courses do NOT obligate the student to the military.
