Project LEAD - Wheaton Academy
Student Life

Project LEAD

The Student Leadership program equips students to engage in the kingdom work of reconciliation and restoration through the development of authentic relationships with Jesus and with others while identifying and developing spiritual and leadership gifts to serve our campus, communities, and the world

We believe in developing Student Leaders

Wheaton Academy has a key role in developing the next generation of Christian leaders. It’s an important part of our overall mission of nurturing growth in students through relationships, excellence and service to the glory of God and it’s an important aspect of living in a kingdom community. 

It has to be authentic. In order to help students grow as leaders, we try to provide them with authentic leadership opportunities that allow them to succeed and to fail.

Leadership opportunities are available to everyone. Since leadership is serving and positively influencing others, we believe that all students have the potential to develop as leaders.
