Leadership Academy

Leadership is a primary focus of FCCLA. As students take responsibility for planning, implementing, and evaluating chapter projects and activities, they develop the skills needed to take the lead in their families, careers, and communities.

All members have leadership potential, whether or not they hold formal chapter leadership positions. It often comes down to exploring abilities, taking risks, and developing a personal leadership style. A successful chapter will recognize that it needs different kinds of leaders for different experiences and will encourage leadership diversity.

FranklinCovey FCCLA Leadership Academy

FranklinCovey FCCLA Leadership Academy empowers students with the leadership and life skills they need to thrive in the 21st Century. Allowing members to be recognized for their growth efforts, each academy has a unique focus and will help students develop leadership skills and self-confidence with peers in their grade level.

Using FranklinCovey resources, FCCLA members will experience in-depth training as part of their ultimate leadership experience.


In partnership with FranklinCovey, FCCLA is continuing a unique pilot program for a limited number of members utilizing an interactive learning management system. FranklinCovey Leader in Me® materials offers self-paced, on-demand courses that can be used as leader-led training or as standalone learning options. The Leader in Me® learning platform’s Student Leadership Courses provides members with in-depth training on the life-readiness skills that will benefit them as members and throughout their life. 

FCCLA requires members participating in Leadership Academy begin with the Life Readiness course, Leading Your Life, as it takes students through an in-depth look into the 7 Habits of Highly Effective Teens and is the foundation of all the courses. 

In Spring 2023, FCCLA is offering the Leadership Readiness course to those members that have completed the Life Readiness Course. The additional courses within the platform will be available at a future date as we continue the Leadership Academy program. To learn more about these courses, please visit the website at https://www.leaderinme.org/student-development-high/.

Registration is open NOW in the Student Portal until February 3, 2023!


Members develop skills for life through: character development, creative and critical thinking, interpersonal communication, practical knowledge, and career preparation.
