Leadership opportunities abound at the Academy, allowing students to find their passion and voice. Students travel to our nation’s capitol several times a year to learn advocacy skills at AIPAC and Panim el Panim programs. Model UN students spend a weekend in New York with a competitive mock program on world affairs. Back at home, students join student council and debate club to hone their leadership and speaking skills.

Students learn to express themselves in writing, poetry, photography and art through our award-winning student publications. On stage, every student performs in our grade-level Shakespeare live productions. They shine in girls’ choir, film class, speech class and more.
