On November 13, 2014, proud participants attended their final session of the Mount Mercy Academy Leadership Challenge.

True Leadership develops as a result of confidence, resilience, knowledge, wisdom, and the courage to step up to opportunities that are presented. Simply put, leadership skills matter and Mount Mercy Academy offers your middle school students an opportunity to gain an advantage today, in high school, in college and beyond.

Principals, from grammar schools throughout the area, nominate two students from their 8th grade to participate. The program provides these students the opportunity to gain a competitive edge by learning, developing and experiencing leadership.

Students attend a full day program at Mount Mercy Academy during their normal school day and throughout the fall of 2014. They are studying topics such as: Leadership in High School and College, How to be a Leader Every Day, Turning Leadership into Service, Rachel's Challenge: A Message of Kindness & Compassion. Students work with Mount Mercy Academy's faculty and students to create a memorable and educational experience.
