Education in Action is currently moving forward with plans to hold 2020 Lone Star Leadership Academy camps as scheduled. We are closely monitoring the COVID-19 situation and will post an update if our summer schedule changes. The safety and well-being of our student participants and our staff is always our top priority. All 2020 nominees will be eligible to participate in summer 2020 and summer 2021 camps.
Nominate Outstanding Students for the Lone Star Leadership Academy!
Your nominees have the opportunity to join a delegation of distinguished students from across the state in Dallas/Fort Worth, Austin/San Antonio, or Houston/Galveston for a week of fun, learning, leadership development, and visits to unique and significant Texas sites. Participants develop leadership skills, gain insight into future career opportunities, develop friendships with other high-achieving students, and add to their resume of academic achievements.

"What a wonderful program. My son has never been so excited about learning. My son's week at the Dallas/Fort Worth program brought all his history lessons from school to life. He can't wait to go to Austin next summer."
