The UCOLA is a progressive program that strives to further develop already-developing high school students to become competent leaders. The UCOLA accomplishes this by providing four first-rate training experiences that will allow each Academy participant to develop and enhance their own leadership abilities throughout the experience.

Some of the break out classes included: goal setting, leadership and communication, team building and transition and trust.
