• The Annual Junior Disney/YES Experience will be Thursday, March 2 - Monday, March 6, 2017

    Annually the  Leadership Academy’s Junior class travels to Walt Disney World to participate in the Y.E.S. (Youth Education Series) Programs. For a learning experience that is second to none!  The group form bonds, grows together, and learns incredible lessons on how to do things the Disney way.
    For the past six years the Leadership Academy, together with the Academy of Hospitality and Tourism have ventured to Florida in late March or February to participate in a unique learning experience where we are able to interact with Disney Imagineers through their Y.E.S. Programs. From our experience, the leadership and personal lessons learned and growth from these few short days are immeasurable.
