Student empowerment to lead is an important component of CBCP’s cultural success. Here, leadership is action and not a title. All students are expected to contribute to making others better. For those that desire additional training and have a penchant for service, we offer several paths to student leadership.
The Team Delta Program
Team Delta is CBCP’s premier student leadership program. The Delta program begins for select students during sophomore year. Students are invited at the conclusion of their freshman year based on the recommendation of their teachers, coaches, or other staff members. As sophomores, students take Leadership Seminar 1 (LS1). The course is designed to provide leadership foundations including the art of motivation, cultural leadership and emotional awareness, and basic data and analytical methods. Based on their merit and performance, qualifying students can advance to Leadership Seminar 2 during their junior year (LS2). LS2 continues their leadership education with more advanced methods and allows students to lead significant projects and initiatives. The course is performance and action-based, not a study in theory. At the conclusion of LS2, students can interview to become a part of Team Delta.
Team Delta creates and oversees multiple school support initiatives including tutoring, mentorship, cultural celebrations and presentations, and public speaking engagements. Team Delta students have significant freedoms and autonomy in exchange for demonstrated results that allow them to be effective in supporting the school’s academic, cultural, and physical initiatives.
Bulls Ambassadors is an exciting new addition to the flourishing leadership programs as CBCP. In it’s inaugural year there are 70 students from grades 9-12 who volunteer their time to lead and participate in school events and functions including Report Card Pick Up, Music Concerts, 8th Grade Informational Sessions, and much more. Students participate in multiple avenues of training; anywhere from how to present themselves and converse with new people to how to problem solve in a fast pace environment. Students are selected by grade level teachers and advisors based on previous evidence of leadership and outstanding qualities.
National Honor Society
The National Honor Society (NHS) is the nation’s premier organization established to recognize outstanding high school students. More than just an honor roll, NHS serves to honor those students who have demonstrated excellence in the areas of scholarship, leadership, service, and character. These characteristics have been associated with membership in the organization since its beginning in 1921. Four main purposes have guided chapters of NHS from the beginning: to create enthusiasm for scholarship; to stimulate a desire to render service; to promote leadership; and to develop character in the students of secondary schools. These purposes also translate into the criteria used for membership selection in each local chapter.
Marine Corps JROTC
The MCJROTC program prepares students for leadership roles while making them aware of their rights, responsibilities, and privileges as Americans. The mission of MCJROTC is to motivate young people to be better citizens. The program promotes graduation from high school, college, and provides instructional opportunities which benefit the student, community, and nation. MCJROTC also provides students with countless opportunities for leadership development, enrichment, summer camps, and college scholarships.
