Our involvement with the Sparkle Effect program is directly aligned with our mission as a school to ensure that all students are respected.”

What is the Sparkle Effect?

This innovative student-run program empowers teens nationwide to include students with disabilities in school-based cheerleading and dance programs. Sparkle Effect teams are truly inclusive: typically-developing students and students with disabilities practice and perform as one team at school sporting events.

A Quick-Start kit, grants for uniforms, and free on-site training make starting an inclusive team easy and fun! The result: students with disabilities experience true acceptance and gain confidence while high-school students become passionate leaders that inspire entire communities to embrace inclusion.

So, are you IN?
