The Hamilton Leaders Academy

The Hamilton Leaders Academy is a no student cost program that helps students get into college, transition to college, succeed while in college and transition to the post college world. Currently the program is two years in length. Each year of the program includes an "academic-year" of curriculum, running from September to April, along with a week-long summer leadership camp we call "Leader Week." The academic year consists of individual support through email and phone calls and group support through conference calls. Each "Leader Week" takes place in a different location. The first year takes place in Seattle; the second year concludes with an international service experience.
