QUEST 1 & 2
An in-depth and personalized study of leadership (among other things!). Students come face-to-face with 6 great leaders and their landmark speeches. They read about, write about, and discuss the circumstances that led them to greatness.
Second semester they learn to find their own leaders among history and current times who exemplify the traits that great leaders exemplify—Virtue, Wisdom, Courage, Diplomacy, Inspiring Greatness in Others and Moving the Cause of Liberty.
They write persuasive essays and do presentations on the lives of those leaders who resonated with them personally.
They also work on these essential traits as they come to see themselves and each other as people who can and will influence the world for good.
All books are included with tuition. Books are subject to change based on the mentors' discretion.
During the second semester of Quest , each student will be expected to turn in a 10 page research paper on a topic of their choice
