Flint Year - Learning to Lead Myself

The first C5 year is the building block for the next five and for everything our students will do in the future. This year is filled with C5 orientation and planning activities, service projects to see what community impact looks like, and programs focused on what it means to be a leader.


C5 Flint Experience

The Flint  Experience begins with a 25 day resident learning experience in the outdoors, followed by year round pathway events throughout the school year. Rising eighth graders learn and develop fundamental leadership skills in an environment that emphasizes positive relationships, challenging adventure experiences, community involvement and C5 culture. Through the curriculum, participants identify their leadership strengths, explore the idea of going to college, and gain a better understanding of how they are influenced by and influence others.
