Leader in Me at VPAA

The Leader in Me is a whole-school transformation model – developed in partnership with educators – that empowers students with the skills they need to thrive in the 21st century.  The Leader in Me redefines what school greatness means, represented through three overlapping circles:


Leadership is taught directly to students, but more important, integrated seamlessly with everyday lessons.  Students look for ways to use their talents to better the school community.


Staff and students are empowered to have a  voice in their school and feel a strong sense of community and trust.


Students are active agents in their learning.  They set personalized goals and frequently share their data and progress with other students, teacher, and parents.
