Student Leadership University
Student Leadership University (SLU) is a faith-based, experiential leadership-training program that empowers, enables and equips middle and high school students to rise to the call of leadership and awaken their potential. A student leadership journey like none other, SLU offers unforgettable experiences that equip students to change the way they think, dream and lead, both today and for the rest of their lives.
Students participating experience classrooms around the U.S. and world, where we offer four progressive, cumulative experiences designed to grow students’ faith, teach them to lead and gain a vision for the future through A Christian worldview. Whether they go behind-the-scenes at Sea World, explore our Nation’s Capital, immerse themselves in history in Europe or walk where Jesus walked in Israel, at SLU, young people learn to think bigger, ignite their calling, impact their world and lead like Jesus.
SLU provides students many unique opportunities, including walking the beaches of Normandy, touring the war memorials in Washington, D.C., and listening to speakers as diverse as English royalty, professional athletes, politicians, self-made millionaires, and others who have been used in extraordinary ways to make an eternal difference. SLU students will have the chance to learn leadership principles from some of the most respected leaders in the Christian community. Students who participate in Lion Leadership Academy and SLU will gain excellent leadership training and experience life-changing events. These programs are a key component in the continuing pursuit of Central Texas Christian School to develop and graduate authentic Christian leaders.
