THE WORLD NEEDS MORE SAINTS
The 2018-2019 LEDA application is now open!
LEDA is searching the country for the next Cohort of LEDA Scholars!
The LEDA Scholars Program supports high-achieving students from low-income families in gaining admission to selective colleges. Each year, we recruit high school juniors from all over the country, and host them for a completely free seven-week Summer Institute on the campus of Princeton University where they receive academic preparation, leadership development, SAT/ACT prep, and intensive college guidance counseling.
When they return home for their senior year of high school, LEDA counselors support them remotely through each stage of the college application and financial aid process to help these incredible students gain admission to top colleges that are great fits for them academically, socially, and financially.
LEDA is looking for juniors in high school who are highly motivated, have demonstrated leadership ability, and have succeeded in taking rigorous coursework at their school.
To learn more about LEDA and the eligibility requirements, visit our website and download our flyer and brochure.

Most shadows require students to be 16 years old at the time of the shadow, but younger students are welcome to come and chat with Mrs. Salguero about opportunities in the future.
