Using the Power of Words to Change the World
We take a practical approach to eduction and meeting students where they are — immersed in media, storytelling and content. The pillars of our educational model focus on developing modern skills to equip students for life outside the classroom.
Media and Storytelling
Media is the tool our students use to create their own stories, as well as demonstrate their findings and understanding of educational themes.
Students learn to use different mediums, print, digital and internet, including the use of audio, photography, video, and printing equipment, software and internet application to manipulate and publish content.
Learning is active and students are engaged in discovery, grappling, and meaning-making. We define inquiry as the process of asking questions and seeking answers. Students develop the problem-solving skills to seek answers inside and outside of school.
Whole Child Development
Our students are not just academic outcomes: they are human beings who have unique ideas, feelings, and aspirations. We honor this by helping students understand and articulate their strengths, identify and communicate emotions, and implement strategies to work through challenging emotions.
Progressive Learner Autonomy
Controlling every aspect of students’ academic and social lives does not create independent thinkers. We provide our learners with autonomy that creates a sense of self-efficacy and self-confidence in students' abilities to successfully navigate in different learning environments and their community.
confidence • compassion • celebration
While our vision, pillars, and mission steer our educational direction — it's our aims that shape how we envisions our students day-to-day. We build our programs and curriculum to foster these qualities.
Students are self-aware and curious. They think critically and creatively to solve problems and achieve goals. Students perform, achieve, and excel academically.
Students are engaging storytellers who challenge and influence the perspectives of others through meaningful, relevant, engaging stories.
With a high degree of self-efficacy, students build relationships and work across lines of difference to accomplish tasks with a high degree of efficiency and quality.
With empathy and deep understanding, students create change through personal efforts as well as empowering others.
