Learning Leadership Skills in Fairburn & Peachtree City, GA

Become a Community Leader at Landmark Leadership Academy

What does it mean to be a leader? Every day, Landmark Christian School students are learning the leadership principles necessary to become successful in elementary, middle, and high school, at universities, and in the workplace. The Landmark Leadership Academy (LLA) is nationally recognized for its excellence in creative programming, instructional design, and community engagement. Not only does our curriculum teach students the basics of business, but the program promotes the skills and character needs to become a leader in any industry. Our LLA program begins in middle school and continues throughout all four years of high school. Upon graduation from our Fairburn, GA academy, students already have real-world experience and a robust network of mentors.

Elements to Expect from the Leadership Academy

The LLA at Landmark Christian School is specially designed to provide students with all the skills necessary to become a confident leader. However, learning leadership qualities is not nearly as simple as memorizing math equations or vocabulary words. As such, we have honed our leadership program to emphasize the following elements:
  • Leadership Character Training: This part of our curriculum stresses the importance of particular character traits useful in leadership.
  • Leadership Skills Training: Our faculty will help students develop crucial skills necessary to succeed as a leader. These might include working with others, critical thinking, and planning ahead.
  • Masterclass Instruction: Students have numerous opportunities to attend masterclass sessions with some of the top business professionals in the area.
  • Business and Entrepreneurship Concentration: Our students can opt to hone their skills as entrepreneurs through these specialized courses.
  • Mentorship: Landmark Christian School has excellent relationships with successful business leaders. We're excited to provide students with this network and the mentorship that comes with it.
  • Real-World Leadership Experience: Upon leaving LLA, students will have a wealth of real-world experience to pull from as they enter college or the workforce.
  • International Learning Opportunities: Explore the world with LLA! We love taking students on trips outside the U.S. to broaden their horizons.

The Importance of Leadership Skills

Middle and high school curricula are designed to teach children and teenagers the skills they'll need to succeed in the real world. Leadership qualities are among the most crucial skills to learn during this time. The skills developed while still in high school build a solid foundation for continued leadership experience in future years. These leadership qualities instill a sense of control and confidence in adolescents. Many are better prepared to think creatively, problem-solve, and collaborate in a team. A leadership-focused curriculum, in short, cultivates responsible adults.

Leadership Academy Highlights

What makes our leadership academy unique? For starters, we're one of the only programs of its kind in the area, and we're dedicated to helping students grow as leaders, as well as grow in their relationship with Christ. Specific highlights of LLA include, but certainly aren't limited to:
  • Middle School Leadership Module: Our middle school curriculum draws on Mark Miller's "Heart of Leadership" and Tim Elmore's "Habitudes" to emphasize leadership character.
  • High School Leadership Module: High school students have the chance to work with local business leaders to improve more specific skills. These might include time management, goal setting, and working in teams.
  • Leadership 101: After one year in LLA, students can take Leadership 101. In this course, students will learn more about leadership styles through reading, projects, and case studies.
  • Leadership Practicum: This more advanced course guides students as they develop their own service or business project.
  • International Experience: Our students have plenty of opportunities to travel abroad. These life-changing experiences allow teenagers to quite literally walk in the footsteps of history's great leaders.
