Why Fox Cities Leadership Academy?



WHAT IS THE FOX CITIES LEADERSHIP ACADEMY ALL ABOUT?

The Fox Cities Leadership Academy (FCLA) offers a rigorous, contemporary & interdisciplinary curriculum that provides students with the opportunity to develop lifelong skills through our small learning community. 

Students will develop skills such as:
• Critical thinking
• Problem solving
• Leadership: Each student will earn a Wisconsin Youth Leadership Skills Certificate issued by the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction. (Unique to the FCLA!)

HOW WILL FCLA ENHANCE THE HIGH SCHOOL EXPERIENCE?

Here are a few ways that the FCLA can enhance the high school experience beyond the traditional path:

• College Recognition and Rigorous Curriculum: We offer core credits required for graduation, as well as elective courses. All courses will appear on the student’s official transcript, but will be asterisked, indicating to colleges that they are advanced courses.
• Integrated Curriculum: We focus on the big picture by incorporating standards from two or more subject areas, so that students develop a deeper understanding of the topic or concept being studied.
• Credit Planning and Accumulations: Credits in the FCLA are earned over a four-year time span rather than in a single designated year. FCLA works with all students and families to create a high school educational experience that will meet their post-secondary readiness goals.

WHAT MAKES THE FCLA UNIQUE?

FCLA Students:

• Join a non-traditional learning community grounded in interdisciplinary coursework, contemporary issues, and working collaboratively with other students, staff, and community members.
• Complete internships to explore post-secondary and career options.
• Develop a professional leadership portfolio and resume and present the portfolio to community leaders at the end of their senior year.
• Culminate their senior year with a student-designed Senior Capstone Project to further develop critical thinking skills, problem solving abilities and leadership capacity.
