International Student Leadership Conferences

ECS partners with Global Next ( to provide students with the opportunity to develop leadership skills through International Student Leadership Conferences. Students have traveled to England, France, Germany, Poland, Italy, Greece, the Czech Republic, China, and Israel to attend these conferences which provide leadership training sessions as well as travel, lessons in history, and interaction with students from other Christian Schools. Students must make application to enter the program and once they are approved can attend up to two conferences per school year. By completing designated assignments before, during, and after the trip students can earn high school credit if they wish. Each school year ECS offers one trip in the fall and another in the spring.
