Education in Action offers spring break and summer Lone Star Leadership Academy programs for outstanding Texas 4th-8th graders. Participants travel to Dallas/Fort Worth, Austin, or Houston/Galveston to develop leadership skills and experience what they are learning in school through visits to historically, politically, and environmentally significant Texas sites with Texas educators. These Monday-Friday, residential programs are offered during spring break (March 14-18) and throughout the summer.
Selected students must maintain an 85 or higher average, receive an educator recommendation based on demonstrated leadership ability and be actively involved in school/community activities.
