Leader Up  Program

Leader Up is a comprehensive Leadership Program encompassing many facets of

on-going programs at CGCS. Students enter this program in 5th grade and continue in the program until graduation in 12th grade.  Awards are given to students based on points earned by completing leadership activities.  Leadership skills are inherently learned in multiple programs at CGCS.  These programs include : Student-Run Businesses, Student Council, S.M.I.L.E.With Books, E.E.L.S Expeditions, Honor Rolls, Community Service, Zoo Lab, Barnyard, Horsemanship, Steel Drums Band, Gardening, and more. High School students n 9th and 10th grade are required to take a leadership class to enhance their leadership skills and become involved in more intense programs outside the school. Our T.U.R.T.L.E.S Program and S.M.I.L.E. With Books is one of these programs which takes our students to Central America. (See Service Learning Programs for more details.)
