MSDA Kicks Off First Year in the L.E.O. Program

The Mount is thrilled to be the second school in the state, and the first all-girls school, to be chosen for the L.E.O. Program. Working to blend traditional liberal arts with innovative, real-world educational opportunities, the Mount not only focuses on college prep but career readiness as well. MSDA is ready to begin the year of partnership with the program!

About the L.E.O. Program

The L.E.O. Program, an innovative and interactive business curriculum with the core tenants of “Leadership, Entrepreneurship, and Opportunity” is an intensive classroom instruction on a wide range of business topics and is enhanced by interactive panel discussions with current business and government leaders. The participating students will have the opportunity to attend the L.E.O. Program’s Summer Leadership Conference at The Catholic University of America in Washington, DC, as well as other off-site learning experiences.

As part of the curriculum at the Mount, interested students entering their junior year will take part in a comprehensive application process, complete with a professional resume and extensive interviewing, in hopes of securing one of the available seats in the course. The program is in its third year at Don Bosco Preparatory School in Ramsey, and has attained a strong footing since its inception in 2017.

The program was created in honor and memory of Leonidas “Leo” Vagias, who was tragically killed in car accident, alongside his friend Samuel Cali, in 2016. Leo was a Don Bosco alumnus, and brother of Alexandra Vagias '18, who graduated from Mount St. Dominic in 2018.
