How: Students should first sign up on this page. Next, complete the application online at www.chickfilaleaderacademy.com/apply (Be sure to choose York Home School Association as the school) A maximum of 30 students can be accepted into the program. If more than 30 sign up, applications will be reviewed and selected by the facilitator, and students will be notified whether or not they have been accepted.
- The CFA Leader Academy program is the same each year, therefore a student can only participate once. ChickFilA East York had agreed to sponsor YHSA for a period of three years, beginning with the 2018-19 school year and ending with the 2020-21 school year, but they have graciously allowed us to continue the program this year. If more than 30 students apply, priority will be given to those in 11th and 12th grades.
- Students should be committed to the program and be willing to participate in group discussions, hands-on activities, and service projects that they will be planning in the community as well as respond to communication from facilitators in a timely fashion.
