International travel is not an "official" part of SCLA.  However, we offer OPTIONAL trips to enhance your leadership experience during the four years of SCLA.

Summer of 2014 

We are finding with our graduating seniors that SCLA is really setting them apart from the competition as they apply for college.  When so many students have great grades, volunteer work, extra-curricular activities, what is the one component that sets them apart?  LEADERSHIP.   With SCLA, leadership is not just a word.  It is who we are and what we do.  

2014 Nicaragua trip will be the experience of a life-time.

Info on Nicaragua 
  • Get your hands dirty!  Build a school in a small village.
