KYLA Program Paused for 2020-2021
To: Area High School Juniors (and parents)
We have made the difficult decision to have a one-year pause in the K.Y.L.A. program due to COVID-related concerns. Area high school guidance offices have been notified and we are contacting the few students who applied for admission directly.
We currently plan to send applications to each school In late Spring for the 2021-2022 academy class. We are tentatively planning for that class to be open to students who will be Juniors AND SENIORS. This plan would allow this year's Juniors to apply to participate as Seniors, along with students who will be Juniors next Fall. We anticipate that we will need to accommodate for a larger class due to this plan.
We will keep the applications we already received from applicants earlier this year. If these applicants want to apply to participate as Seniors, they may choose to use the application we already received or they may choose to complete a new form in the Spring.
Please feel free to reach out to me with any questions/concerns.
The Academy was formed to encourage the growth, education, training, and motivation of future leaders to meet the challenges of development and expansion in Kosciusko County in the coming decades. It is our goal to provide a positive environment where aspiring high school aged youth can learn the basics of leadership and become informed, capable leaders that assume active roles in the growth of our community.
Along with area businesses, we offer the opportunity for each student to experience various areas of our community, from government and healthcare to social services and agribusiness.
