Primary School Institute

Due to COVID-19 and following guidelines set forth by Governor Murphy, our GLI program is going virtual this summer. The following page details our regular GLI offerings so that you can join us when we are back together for summer 2021. In the meantime, we hope to see you remotely!

Leadership in Daily Life

The GLI Summer Institute for students entering grades four and five emphasizes how leadership relies on building relationships. Participants will identify strengths in themselves and in others and create a community based on respect, empathy, and teamwork. They will build communication skills and practice strategies for conflict resolution. Together, girls will learn to set goals, face challenges with courage and develop greater resilience.
“An awesome beginning for embarking on a lifetime of leadership opportunities.”
