Leadership development is invasive in everything we do at Assumption. Gone are the days of leaders solely developing from student elections. With the priority on 21st century skill in the classroom, teachers purposefully design assignments, group projects, and educational activities that promote students’ development of communication, collaboration, creativity, and critical-thinking skills. In learning how to work together, ALL students learn every aspect of an effective team so they are able to lead them in the future.
When club officers are elected, they attend a leadership workshop where they learn about the responsibility of leading, ways to get others vested in their organization, and how to brainstorm and plan events and activities that are meaningful to their members and others in the community.
Family Council/Class Officers
In the summer, teacher moderators meet with nearly 70 class officers, family council members, and homeroom moms to plan the year. The girls hear from alumnae who are leaders in their fields, choose a school theme, develop a plan for the Walk for Assumption, and focus on the events that their group will host.
