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. 


2nd Semester LEAD Projects

With Governor Newsom’s announcement that schools should remain closed for the remainder of the year, we will not be able to run the 2nd Semester LEAD Projects/Presentations in the way that was previously assigned to you. 

We are working on an alternate assignment for students, and once we have some more information from the district, we will be in touch. 

Please contact Ms. Siegert if you have any questions. 


Incoming Freshmen

Congratulations to the current 8th grade students who have been accepted to LEAD for next year!

With Governor Newsom’s announcement that schools should remain closed for the remainder of the year due to COVID-19, we are unable to schedule an Incoming Parent/Student meeting at this time. 

Once we have more information from the district about the next few months and the next school year, we will be in touch with families.
