RVS Student Leadership Academy

Our Mission

The Rocky View Schools Leadership Academy (RVSLA) is a division-wide student leadership program that offers a full-year five credit Special Projects course for RVS students in grades 10, 11 or 12. The mission of the RVSLA is to empower students to deepen their sense of self and broaden their network of connections in RVS and beyond.

This program is delivered outside of the regular timetable and offers a blended learning environment in which students connect during both in-person workshops and online video conferences over the school year. Students learn from the expertise of practicing business and community leaders through off-site trips or guest presentations. Students develop skills in self-directed learning, collaboration and communication and present an exhibition of learning at the program's annual Connect Summit event.
