The Life & Leadership Development Series is a collaboration between Mariemont City Schools and the Mariemont School Foundation to bring high-quality national experts and experiences to the district. Each year we offer a full range of content relevant to students in grades K-12.  We bring in speakers and seminars for both students and parents relating to one of the following topics:

  • Spotlight on Wellness

  • Spotlight on College

  • Spotlight on Career


Spotlight on Wellness

These programs focus on physical and mental wellness, helping students grow up happy, healthy and able to maximize their potential.  Topics have included coping with anxiety, the social and emotional needs of gifted students, and mindfulness.

Spotlight on College/Spotlight on Career

The programs included in this series build upon the already robust offerings through the College & Career Planning Center, creating an even more vibrant and well-rounded college and career planning experience for our students and parents.

College Admissions National Speaker

Each school year, the Director of College & Career Counseling arranges a nationally-renowned college admission expert to present to district students and their parents and guardians. These experts offer insight and answer questions on topics such as the application process and choosing a college that is right for you.

Essay-Writing Workshop

In early spring, high school juniors spend part of the school day working with a college essay writing expert. This expert works individually with students to assist them with both the technique and the content of their college essays.

Senior Transition Workshop

Held during the spring of their senior year, students attend a seminar to assist them in making a successful transition to life after high school. Topics include: managing homesickness, navigating roommate issues, making new connections, building strong study habits, and making healthy and smart choices in college.

The vision for the Life and Leadership Series is to incorporate even more exceptional content across the educational experience. Your contribution will help bring additional programming to all of our students.
