To help prepare our students for their college years and future careers, the NSLC focuses on leadership development, goal setting and intrinsic motivation. We are dedicated to: inspiring our students to realize their potential, make informed and thoughtful decisions, set purposeful and tangible goals, and work toward exceptional futures. All of our students, regardless of their chosen curriculum or area of study, leave the NSLC feeling more confident, self-aware, and ready to face the challenges ahead.
NSLC provides students the opportunity to step outside the typical classroom learning environment and into the world of active learning. Our students are fully engaged in exciting and thought-provoking role-play activities, case studies, debates, and hands-on simulations. During each conference we create an open and safe environment in which cooperative learning is the primary means of sharing information, thoughts, and opinions.
We encourage the students to learn from each other and most importantly, to make connections to their life at home, community and future goals. Whether the students are debating medical ethics, listening to the Secretary of Defense, or visiting the Museum of Modern Art, we create opportunities for self discovery and the exploration of new and exciting ideas.
