Character & Leadership Discussions, part of our nationally recognized LifeCompass charater and leadership program, take place once every seven-day cycle at Montrose. CLDs promote reflection, goal-setting and the good habits of great leaders.

Discussions include the following themes:

  • What choices do I make in the face of new academic challenges?
  • What choices do I make in the face of time pressure?
  • What choices do I make to ensure thoughtful rather than impulsive decisions?
  • What choices do I make in the face of stress?
  • What choices do I make in the face of injustice?
  • What choices do I make in the face of adversity?
