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.
The community service requirement for LEAD students provides them with the opportunity not only to help others, but also to learn more about themselves. Through their community service, LEAD students leave a positive impact on their local community while learning that service to others is an on-going part of life. Additionally, they learn civic responsibility, foster interpersonal skills, and strengthen their ties to their community.
The application period for incoming 9th grade students for 2017-2018 has closed. If you are interested in applying for the program but missed the application deadline, please contact the Program Coordinator, Rebecca Siegert.
As a California College Guidance Initiative (CCGI) partner district, our students benefit from the strong partnership between the California State University system and CCGI and from the articulation of CaliforniaColleges.edu with the NEW application platform, Cal State Apply.
LEAD provides students with an opportunity to connect with and give back to the community by creating service opportunities and providing multiple locations where students can volunteer throughout their four years in the program.
