Internship and Leadership Program


INTERNSHIP PROGRAM

Our Juniors and Seniors have the opportunity and privilege of participating in the Internship Program.  For the Seniors, the program is an excellent opportunity to intern at a business of their choice for three weeks at the end of the senior year. Students are able to consider potential venues of interest as well as potential employers. 

For the Juniors, the objective of this program is to offer them the opportunity to use their summer vacation to gain work experience, learn about the industry in which they are interested in pursuing their higher education, and enrich their curriculum making it more attractive for universities.

At EA, we believe our students are “leaders in the making”

LEADERSHIP PROGRAM

We offer our Middle School students’ various opportunities to develop their leadership skills. They may participate in Student Government, National Junior Honor Society, or the Leadership Seminar Series (LSS).

The Leadership Seminar seeks to make participants aware of their capacity and potential for leadership by assessing personal leadership styles, including strengths and weaknesses. LSS students participate in the Youth Leadership Development Summit hosted by different AASCA schools.  The Leadership Experience trip enables students to become familiar with higher education opportunities and requirements, as well as cultural events. LSS members acquire skills to work collaboratively and build effective teams.

Our “Leaders of the Future” are part of the G Leaders. This group works by promoting leadership skills amongst the Upper School students. The G Leaders group is made up of students that lead in their own special way. Some are athletes, other artists, scholars, and most have all these qualities put together. The G Leaders’ objective is for our students to be known in the community as leaders with values, a strong stand against bullying, and possessing a buoyant Trojan spirit. G Leaders is divided into four pillars: Character, Service, Leadership, and Anti-Bullying.
