LEAD Workshops Set Student Focus Beyond the Classroom

Lead Logo Edited

This year, New Oasis International Education is proud to offer a  new and exciting pilot program: Leadership Excellence and Development (LEAD).  Currently in its trial phase for the 2013 – 2014 school year at Cape Henry Collegiate School, Gaston Day School and Greensboro Day School, LEAD offers student participants unmatched enrichment and development opportunities to better prepare them for the transition to college life and beyond.

This month, New Oasis will hold its first LEAD Workshop of the year. These workshops, will help students focus on important college admissions related topics.  Held outside of a traditional classroom setting, the LEAD workshops aim to help students focus their attention beyond academics and the classroom. Topics during this month’s LEAD workshops include:

  1. Dispelling common myths about college admissions
  2. The importance of planning a portfolio/resume
  3. Making summer plans that truly count

After the workshop, students will have an assignment to complete during the winter vacation, in preparation for the next LEAD workshop.
