LeadX is the newest program from the team at Horn focused on individual leadership for high school students. 


Leadership is a powerful tool. However, you can’t lead others until you begin the lifetime, systematic and habitual process of leading yourself. This 1 credit dual enrollment course focuses on early stage development of the mindset, habits, character ethic and capabilities needed to continuously improve your life and the lives of those you care most about. Great questions, thought and reflection are emphasized with a focus on three foundational assertions; (1) You have the power and responsibility to lead and develop yourself, others, and your community. (2) You do so by reflection, and by exploring and engaging the world. (3) And, you do so effectively by identifying and developing your CORE, strengths, values, and skills.

Learning Objectives
