Northwood School’s LEAP program is designed to enrich students’ academic experience by providing unique experiential programs that serve to broaden horizons, further academic growth, and provide opportunities otherwise unavailable in a traditional course of academic study. Programming is intended to challenge students’ perspectives and understanding of the world they live in and will someday lead. It is the school’s intention that these programs will serve to open doors to students and their future endeavors.
