Description of Program
The Jean Forest Senior High Leadership Academy is an Academic Diploma oriented course.
The Jean Forest Leadership Academy is designed so that girls receive all of their core instruction in an all girls structured setting. This includes Mathematics, Sciences, Social Studies, English, Religion, CALM, and Leadership. By keeping their core education in the all girls setting, studies have shown that there are fewer distractions and girls are more willing to take risks, speak up, ask for help, share opinions and achieve better academically. All core subjects are offered in a structured setting with the opportunity to accelerate if the young woman is capable and motivated to do so.
All options courses are received in a co‐ed setting with the other students at St. Joseph High
School. A wide range of option courses are available to the young women in this program including French, Spanish, Italian, Art, Drama, Music, Career and Technology Studies, Cosmetology, Foods, Fashion, Automotives, and much more. Receiving options in a co‐ed setting allows the young women the opportunity to interact with other students and develop socially as well.
