DESIGN PRINCIPLES

HOLISTIC EXPLORATION

We prioritize intellectual, physical, social-emotional, and spiritual education. We develop as well-rounded human beings prepared to apply our studies to real-world settings.

LEARNER AS DRIVER

All members of our community are learners who set personalized goals, use individualized strategies, and take responsibility for our success with the aid of a coach. Our support systems adapt based on the unique needs of each learner, providing more structure or agency for those who need it.

CHALLENGING WORK

We know that the world is a challenging place and that we need concrete content knowledge and skills to achieve our goals. We employ a rigorous standards-aligned curriculum and maintain high academic expectations for all.

KNOWLEDGE CO-CREATION

Our learning process is grounded in strong relationships and mutual respect. We utilize dialogue, feedback, inquiry, projects, and other collaborative forms of education to reach our goals. We are curious collaborators and facilitators of the learning process.

INTEGRATION BY DESIGN

We are an integrated community of diverse students and staff. We challenge and support one another to learn from and across differences. Our curricula, policies, and practices are reflective of and responsive to the diversity of our community.
