What is Leadership High School?
Leadership High School (LHS) is a leadership development and diversity awareness program solely for outstanding public high school leaders in the Lone Star College Service Area. The program is offered at no cost to the participant.
The community-based program, sponsored by Lone Star College, offers high school sophomores and juniors the opportunity to become better informed of the critical issues affecting the community where they live and work. The program also provides a unique opportunity to help prepare area youth for responsible citizenship while they develop crucial leadership skills.
Selected students will be placed in one of the three following groups based on the school district where their public high school is located.
LHS-Montgomery County: Conroe ISD, Magnolia ISD, New Caney ISD, Splendora ISD, and Willis ISD.
LHS-North Houston: Aldine ISD, Humble ISD and Spring ISD.
LHS-Northwest: Cypress-Fairbanks ISD, Klein ISD, and Tomball ISD.
Participants are challenged during interactive monthly sessions to examine their own leadership actions and aspirations and to learn first-hand the leadership stories and practices of key decision makers within the Region. The program begins in October with an orientation session followed by a leadership skills retreat and continues with monthly sessions through April.
