Good leadership contributes to an effective and ethical community, and is refined and strengthened through training and action. Deerfield Academy acknowledges the importance and influence of student leaders on our campus and hopes that positions are undertaken with the commitment to serve fully and selflessly, while keeping in mind that leadership is measured in the quality of the service, rather than the quantity of roles.
Training, therefore, emerges from an effort to encourage students to properly prepare for their responsibilities, to understand the limits of their efforts and influence, and to model desired behavior.
Students in Positions of Formal Leadership are:
- Academic Honor Committee
- Club Presidents/Heads
- Disciplinary Committee
- Peer Counselors
- Peer Tutors
- Environmental Proctors
- Scroll Editorial Board
- Student Council
- Varsity Team Captains and Cheerleading Captains
All Leadership Training Program events are listed on the Events Calendar.
