Programs will feature:

Character Class
Core academic subjects: English, Math, History Science
Sports
Enrichment through creative and performing arts
and YLF's signature one-on-one mentoring

 

Our students most value being a part of YLF because of the friendship they share with their mentor. Students have greater self-confidence, set and achieve more goals and develop positive habits related to character as a result of their time with mentors. We look forward to facilitating a strong mentor relationship with your child.

Virtuous Leadership Academy

for High School Students

The YLF high school mentorship program is the most prestigious of all YLF programs. Students learn how to communicate well, work more effectively, prioritize their time and energy, and make decisions to build a more virtuous and service-oriented life.

2022 SUMMER BUSINESS PLAN COMPETITION 

INDUSTRY FOCUS:  FOOD INDUSTRY

Students are presented with a social problem and asked to design a business solution for it within a particular industry.  Through college-level seminars and working in a professional environment, students learn about complexity of problem and use "design thinking" in groups across civil, art, STEM and business.  After 5-weeks, teams present business ideas to C-Level judges. The 2022 Summer Business Plan Competition will run from July 6 to August 6. Participants meet between the hours of 9:00 - 5:00pm.

SCHOOL YEAR EXPECTATIONS

Mentorship: Students will meet monthly with a matched mentor.

Saturday Workshop Series: Students attend 2-3 workshops about getting into, having success in and planning for success beyond high school.

Community Service: 11th and 12th grade students are asked to become mentors to our elementary school students during the school-year and to keep a written journal of their experience. All students are asked to join semesterly service days.
