Registration for 2024 is now closed. Please check next year for SLA 2025!


Registration for the 2024 Academy is now closed! The deadline to register is June 10. After that time late registration applies.

The curriculum of Serviam Leadership Academy is rooted in servant-leadership principles that give students the tools to succeed as a leader and elicit the best from others. In addition, a primary goal of SLA is working with student leaders to help them be a catalyst for building a strong, positive culture in their program. SLA’s curriculum focuses on the three pillars of student leadership: leadership, teaching, and conducting, with extensive sessions in each area.

SLA is designed for *all* student leaders. Section leaders, captains, and drum majors all attend. In addition, students without leadership positions attend and use the experience to prepare them for future leadership opportunities.

Tuition: 2024 cost- $135 (late registration- $150)

The deadline to register is June 10, 2024. Late registration fees apply to anyone who registers after June 10. Late registration ends on June 17.

This experience made me believe again. Dr. Montgomery and the staff made me realize that leadership comes in many more facets than I previously realized. Those leadership strategies will return with me to my environment at home, and will help me be a better leader and person than I ever was before.
