Ignite Leadership & STEM Academy
Ignite Leadership & STEM Academy is the premier program for girls ages 11-15, presented by the Society of Extraordinary Women, Inc. Our program provides specific skills that support personal and academic success. These skills include the development of greater self-esteem, team building, public speaking acumen, proper social and cyber etiquette, financial literacy, experience in community service, arts, aviation, STEM academics, and preparation for college.
The purpose of our Leadership & STEM Academy is to instill in our students a desire for learning, increasing their graduation rates, engaging in non-traditional subject matters and career choices, and helping them also develop leadership skills. These skills will allow them to self-navigate and make critical choices in their lives that result in positive outcomes. We provide mentoring and education for a lifetime.
