Chick-fil-A Leader Academy™

CFALA LOGO_edited.jpg

Peak Education collaborates with Chick-fil-A: Citadel Crossing to further Peak Ed's work in helping our scholars develop holistically, specifically in our pillars: Self-Advocacy & Life Skills, Post-Secondary & Career,  and Community Engagement. Chick-fil-A Leader Academy (CFALA) curriculum enhances our traditional project, formerly known as Impact Service Project (ISP), where scholars will continue to have the opportunity to engage with one another, work to address a pressing issue/need in our local SE Colorado Springs communities, and create innovative solutions to address that issue.

Chick-fil-A Leader Academy™  (CFALA)

Through a year-long curriculum, scholars learn timeless leadership principles like teamwork, communication, and innovation by engaging in monthly “Leader Labs.” These principles are put into practice when the scholars plan and execute an Impact Project benefiting their local community, such as a fundraiser for a local homeless shelter or a can drive for a local food bank. The scholars do not just learn about leadership in our working space, they live it out by serving and making an impact. CFALA is a national high school leadership program empowering students to make an Impact Through Action.

“Through Chick-fil-A Leader Academy, we aspire to develop and empower the next generation of leaders to have a positive influence in their local communities,” said Brent Fielder, senior director of corporate social responsibility at Chick-fil-A, Inc. “The partnership between Peak Education and Chick-fil-A: Citadel Crossing represents a shared commitment to fostering essential leadership skills in today’s students so they can ignite change and create lasting impact in the future.” 

Peak Education staff selects 20 scholars to participate in Application submissions from students interested in participating in the 2024-2025 program are accepted until Friday, July 26, 2024.
