Administered by the Davidson County Education Foundation in partnership with the Davidson County School System and Davidson County Community College

The 2012 Bernard H. Thomas Student Leadership Academy will be held June 18 through June 22 at the Davidson County Community College. The Academy offers students within the Davidson County School System an opportunity to develop and use leadership skills during an exciting week of special classes and projects. Academy leaders emphasize skill development in the areas of self-awareness, listening, speaking, writing, team building, decision-making, problem solving, goal-setting and conflict resolution. Academy graduates are prepared to take leadership roles in their individual schools and communities.

Students from each school (rising 5th – 9th) in the Davidson County School System will be selected based on their application form and the recommendation of their teacher(s). Students may attend the Academy one time in each of the following two levels: First Level (rising 5th & 6th graders), Second Level (rising 7th, 8th, & 9th graders). Students are eligible to apply if they have not previously attended the Academy at the level to which they are currently applying. Applications must be completed by the student in his or her own handwriting and submitted to your local school guidance counselor.

Applications due to Student Services (guidance) no later than March 21st.  Applications will not be accepted after this date.
