Project LEAD is comprised of seven teams that serve in various capacities on our campus, in our communities, and throughout the world. To be eligible for application to Project LEAD, interested juniors are required to attend the mandatory Junior Leadership Academy, designed to teach leadership principles and concepts to prepare them for being a part of Project LEAD.
