At all grade levels the Windermere Leadership Program promotes social responsibility and youth volunteer involvement. Leadership builds self worth, as do the opportunities provided to practice critical thinking in the real world, to take responsive, responsible action and to develop the positive relationships that come from working with and on behalf of children, peers and adults in the community.

Leadership 8 and 9 engage students in enriched, cross-curricular learning opportunities in Social Studies and Physical Education. Grade 10 goes further in depth, including English and Leadership 10 as well as Social Studies and Physical Education. Outdoor and wilderness learning is also a focus of the Grade 10 program.

At the Grade 11 level students continue with Social Studies and Physical Education, leaving plenty of room for other electives and interests. Leadership 11 students are involved in ongoing volunteer work at neighbourhood elementary schools and have the option of training as First Responders. Leadership 12 students develop and implement individual leadership initiatives in the school and community. Intake into this program is limited to 30 Grade 8 students and is based on an assessment held at Windermere.
