Missouri Academy

Community Leaders

What is a Community Leader?

Community Leaders (CLs) are second-year students who have achieved a minimum of 3.25 GPA, have shown success in areas of Student Development, and are prepared to stand out as examples and role-models for other Missouri Academy students. CLs are selected by Missouri Academy staff. They help design and present activities, events, and programs for the student population. CLs also represent the Missouri Academy during Preview Days, Summer Orientation, and other Missouri Academy major events.

Missouri Academy CLs also support first-year students through the CL Mentor Program. In this role, CLs are paired with 2-4 first-year students located on their wing to help guide them through their first year at the Missouri Academy. The CLs will meet with mentees one-on-one and participate in various activities and events with them throughout the year. This provides Missouri Academy first-year students with more opportunities to support success at the Missouri Academy, as well as provides Community Leaders with vital experience at mentoring and leading students.

How to Apply to Become a CL

The application process to be considered for a Community Leader position is straightforward. Applications will be available early during the spring trimester, interviews will be held and decisions will be made before students leave for home at the end of May. The most important part of the process is the experiential component. Though the Student Development staff holds the application process in high regard, the staff does consider all they know about a student in making a determination. That is to say that a student's behavior from the day they move in through the CL selection process is considered.

To increase your chances of being selected as a CL, observe high standards of Integrity and Quality, be academically engaged, and be engaged in student development, - simply put, be an active member of your community through your positive contributions.
