At Altamont, we believe that all students have the ability to lead. In every grade there are opportunities for students to learn and demonstrate their leadership skills in academics, athletics, student government and clubs.Altamont also offers students a way to find their unique expression of leadership through experiential education within our LEAD program and the C. Kyser Miree Ethical Leadership Center. Through these programs students are empowered to discover the strength and beauty of community, genuine action and meaningful growth.

Altamont alumnus Kyser Miree ‘05 was a firm believer in the ability of an individual to make a significant difference in the world. He developed that conviction and sense of responsibility during his years at Altamont, and carried it with him through college and professional life. He was a victim of gun violence in 2010, but his memory and values are celebrated in the name of our thriving center. We invite you to make a gift that will help us continue this work.
