Summer L.E.A.D. Academy provides students a great mix between a summer academic program and a high adventure summer camp, all within the context of Riverside’s famed military model of education. In general, the mornings are centered on the academic component of the program, while the entire afternoon is dedicated to athletics and adventures. The evenings are dedicated to character studies, study skill enhancement, and academic preparation for the next day. The specific curriculum a student participates in largely depends on the grade level they will be entering in the Fall and whether the student is seeking to replace or advance by an academic credit. During the weekends, the students go on trips that take advantage of the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains and the excitement of Atlanta.
