What is LEAD?

LEAD, which stands for Leadership and Enrichment through Academic Development, is an Advanced Placement/Honors program that prepares its students to be critical thinkers, analytical readers and writers, effective communicators, and well-rounded citizens. Graduates of Rosemont’s LEAD Program will develop the skills necessary to be successful in their post-secondary pursuits, including the increasingly competitive world of not only college acceptances, but also the global workforce.
