LSS - Educating Members

Our Ideal Candidate

Class members for the nine-month program are chosen based on criteria relating to:

  • prior leadership and service in the community,
  • potential to contribute,
  • diversity, and
  • desire to be involved.

Our ideal candidate also demonstrates:

  • a desire to strengthen his/her leadership skill set
  • a willingness to learn new approaches to interconnectivity (from interaction with individuals who may differ in personal or leadership style to functioning within organizations or businesses in possibly complex situations.)

Our goal is to choose a diverse and inclusive class that represents different backgrounds in Sandy Springs, across various industries, organizations, cultures, ages, genders, etc. in order to enrich and balance our class. Classes are intentionally kept small with 36 participants to encourage relationship building and facilitate hands-on involvement in activities and projects.


Leadership Sandy Springs is tuition-based. The cost to participate in the adult class is $2,400. This non-refundable fee covers the program and administrative expenses.  A $500 deposit is required at time of acceptance. Employers or civic organizations will often sponsor all or part of a participant’s tuition. A limited number of need-based partial scholarships may be available through the LSS Board of Trustees. If you have questions, please email

Adult Program class tuition can be paid by check or credit card.
