Unstructured by Design: Planning to be Unplanned

In their often heavily-scheduled lives, our children lack what many of us grew up taking for granted - the time and space for self-directed play. At Leadership Academy, we are proud to offer kids that time and space - the time and space they need to slow down, to check in with themselves, to locate and then use their voices. We believe that by placing our faith and trust in kids - by telling them, “We know you can do this!” - we are facilitating the growth of their autonomy and their eventual development into confident, creative, competent adults.
