Future Leaders affords students and families a foundation to a successful and engaging school experience. Future Leaders designs programming around the individualized needs and goals of our students, assisting them throughout high school and transitioning them into a college or career pathway. We provide a team during and/or after school for: academic support, goal setting, motivational guest speakers, community engagement activities, self-awareness building, college visits, career/college planning, internships, soft skills development, service learning, and wellness activities. Liberty Partnerships also continues to offer a wide range of these services throughout the summer. We at Future Leaders are invested in each student, having a positive impact on graduation rates and increased school engagement. We believe in building positive relationships and in doing so, each student becomes their best self, a Future Leader.
Code of Honor
Liberty means Freedom.
The purpose of the Liberty Partnerships Program is to equip today's youth with the tools to be self-sufficient citizens and life-long learners.
Ability is what I am capable of doing. Motivation determines what I do. Attitude determines how well I do it.
As a Liberty Scholar I shall display the following attributes: humility, honor, enthusiasm, ingenuity, innovation, leadership, compassion, cooperation, and selflessness. It is our common responsibility to preserve these attributes by our actions.
As a Liberty Scholar, I will uphold these traits to the best of my ability because I am not only a representative of myself, but also of my family, my community, and my school.
