Rave Reviews from LEAD Participants


My time at LEAD Academy was amazing and almost unexplainable. I used LEAD as a way to help me transition into college, but once I began the program I gained more invaluable knowledge than I expected to receive.

LEAD was a springboard for me. I learned more about leadership within MCLA, and how easy it is to get involved here. Without LEAD I probably would not have had the ambition to get involved this early in my college career. 

Keifer Gammell, '11

I learned how to balance my time, stay academically motivated, and where and when I could volunteer my extra time in North Adams. LEAD is a valuable asset to MCLA and has helped my transition here greatly.

The LEAD workshops and activities really helped prepare me for my first year at MCLA. Plus, I accomplished things I had never done before, while making new friends and meeting campus leaders, all before the school year even started.
