Global Leadership Institute

Cultivating leadership in all students by encouraging them to discover their unique personalities and giftedness and helping them pursue lives of service to their communities and beyond.
“Every student can be a leader with humility or a follower with wisdom.”

The Global Leadership Institute was established in the fall of 2008. It was the vision of the Head of School, Susan Lindsay, and the Board of Trustees. Dr. Cindy Townsend was hired as GLI director (2008–2015) and was asked to create the curriculum and leadership for students in grades 7–12. 

The GLI is the first of its kind in the state of Mississippi and was designed to meet the needs of Prep students. Through the GLI, Prep has stepped forward to provide students with an innovative program to enhance their personal development and leadership skills. The goal of the program is to graduate world-class leaders who excel in academics with a strong foundation of leadership skills.
