The Leadership Program at Albany Academy for Girls is designed to help our students identify, build and hone the skills necessary to navigate their experiences while at AAG and beyond.

The program is multi-faceted, including student government opportunities, leadership classes, sister-class activities, community service opportunities and specified all-school Community Service Days. All of these are in place to help crystallize the meaning of each of our core values: integrity, self-discipline, perseverance, compassion, service, respect, responsibility and ingenuity.

Through weekly leadership classes and advising periods, students identify different styles of leadership and explore the difference between leadership and followership. Recognizing that not all students are comfortable with the traditional opportunities of leadership, we strive to broaden people’s ideas of what it means to be a leader and to help them find new avenues in which to lead.

Most importantly, our students are given the opportunity to apply what they learn in the classroom through our variety of community service programs – both within the school environment and beyond.
