Overview

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. 

Those in the program will develop their capacity for analysis, creativity, innovation, and university-level literacy through four years of an Honors and Advanced Placement curriculum and community service projects/presentations. It is our expectation that graduates of the LEAD program will gain acceptance to a university of their choice based on their performance in academically rigorous classes as well as on their involvement in a variety of community service and extracurricular activities, all of which creates a mature, inquisitive, dedicated student and citizen.
