St. Petersburg Collegiate High School (SPCHS) (St. Petersburg, FL). SPCHS Leadership Program helps students develop leadership skills and gain important career and life skills (e.g., interviewing skills, ethical leadership). The leadership philosophy focuses on service, collaboration, and continual improvement. The program starts in the sophomore year and builds students’ foundational leadership skills. Juniors and seniors may choose high school and/or college courses so that they earn a high school diploma and an associate in arts degree. In the junior year, students learn skills that will help them in a business environment (e.g., business etiquette, dressing for success, and communication skills). College professors assess juniors on these skills during their Leadership Luncheon performance demonstration. Juniors also start developing an online portfolio (an archive of high school and college work). Seniors take a college leadership course, assume leadership roles, and complete their e-portfolios. By graduation, students’ portfolios highlight various aspects of leadership, academic accomplishments, and business etiquette skills. Students showcase their e-portfolios with parents and community representatives at the Senior Capstone networking event.
