Leadership Development Program

A successful leader is someone who inspires growth in self and others.  This requires a high degree of Emotional Intelligence: self-awareness, self-regulation, self-motivation, social awareness, and relationship skills.  The Fay School’s Leadership Development Program engages students to develop these abilities through reflection and communication.  By providing opportunities to practice these skills across the curriculum, we cultivate their leadership to positively impact the world.

How do we accomplish this at The Fay School?

Early Childhood and PreKindergarten

  • Children have an internalized understanding of their rights in the Fay community.
  • Children have an internalized understanding of what responsibility means.
  • Children’s behavior demonstrates that they have a positive self-concept and an understanding of community expectations.

Kindergarten through Second Grade

  • Children understand and practice The Fay Code and The Mediation Tool with adult facilitation.
  • Children learn to articulate hopes and dreams.
  • Children can identify their own strengths and stretches to accomplish their hopes and dreams.           

Third through Fifth Grade

  • Children utilize The Fay Code and The Mediation Tool independently or with peer facilitation.
  • Children understand how their current StrengthsExplorer themes impact their learning style.
  • Children set and evaluate individual leadership goals incorporating information from StrengthsExplorer
  • Children demonstrate effective leadership through their own actions and peer mentoring.
  • Children are equipped to continue to develop Emotional Intelligence throughout their lives.
