NCGLS at Stuart

The National Center for Girls' Leadership at Stuart delivers on its mission through an innovative preschool through grade 12 leadership curriculum that is committed to teaching the five standards of leadership: values, intellect, agency, collaboration and vision. 

Signature Events

women in leadership panel

The National Center for Girls' Leadership is pleased to announce a new format to the Women In Leadership Speaker Series. In 2020-2021, we hosted three Women in Leadership panels to address topics related to STEM, Business, and Social Justice. Each panel included professional women from within and outside the Stuart community and was open to students in all three divisions. This new format creates more community building and networking opportunities for our students and demonstrates that women are leading in all professional sectors! We are happy that the Women in Leadership Speaker Series will meet Goals 2 and 4 of the Sacred Heart Goals - and address all five of the NCGLS Leadership Standards: Values, Intellect, Agency, Collaboration, and Vision.
