True leaders are those who combine an excellent education with a devotion to living life well. It is for this reason that we developed My Leadership Compass: A Christ-Centered High School Curriculum. It is a teacher-friendly curriculum to foster exploration, discovery, and development in true leadership for high school students.
Throughout the course, you will find material for discussion and discovery, along with opportunities for application. The Course Profile includes a brief organizational synopsis and a legend of icons to assist you each day. The activities, scriptures, and quotes are designed to draw each student out in challenging ways, and to make the course more of a journey to anticipate and enjoy. We suggest the course grade be based on engagement with the material as there are no formal assessments included. It is necessary for each student to have a Bible with them to complete each day’s work.
Solid leadership and My Leadership Compass are rooted and grounded in boundaries and integrity. These difficult yet vital, complex, and life-changing concepts and principles are interwoven throughout this Christ-centered leadership text.
To have an excellent education is a noteworthy goal, one that will greatly benefit students and, prayerfully, the world at large. However, fusing academic excellence with true leadership reaches another dimension altogether. Those who choose to be all they are created to be and to foster the same in others can reach heights not bound by time—namely, eternity.
We want you to know that we support you in all your efforts as you journey alongside your student(s). It is exciting to think of the concentric effect of your life on others and the interconnectedness shared. Our God is awesome!
Let the exploration, discovery, and growth begin!
