Heyborne Leadership Academy

The Heyborne Leadership Academy is a 4-unit course which provides an opportunity for students to cultivate and elevate their fundamental leadership skills.  This program seeks to strengthen students' leadership potential by building on their basic analytical and communication skills along with providing regular leadership-specific exercises and discussions. 

Goals: The Heyborne Leadership Academy believes that leadership development begins with higher, "basic academic skills" than the normal college freshmen possess. Our primary goals are to: 

  • Increase your analytical and verbal skills
  • Learn the latest techniques of study skills and successful performance strategies
  • Receive leadership training that involves building an independent leadership identity and increasing leadership competencies. 

Topics: The Heyborne Leadership Academy is a year-long program, meeting ten Saturday mornings each semester, 10:00 am - 12:00 pm.  The curriculum topics (include, but are not limited to):

Financial Literacy
Personal Goals and Values
Career Development
Healthy Lifestyles
Active Listening and Notetaking
Healthy Relationships
Public Speaking Skills
Community Involvement and Outreach
Conflict Management
Diversity and Social Justice
Working with others
Critical Thinking
Personal Management

One highlight includes regular writing reviews, with highly personalized feedback to the students.  There is minimal homework and no textbook purchase required for the program.

All participants will receive:

    • Certificate of completion which can be noted on your resume
    • Four college credits (two credits in the Fall semester and two credits in the Spring semester)
    • Complimentary Heyborne pad folio
