To help each child find a passion by being imaginative, creative, and innovative; developing confidence, determination, and resilience; and having agency to build a better world.
A Learner-Centered Environment
Support for each learner's unique talents; encouragement for every learner to make discoveries; opportunities to design, build, and construct; and a safe place to make mistakes and find solutions.
Creativity and Innovation
Access to knowledge, skills, and resources to use their imaginations; purposeful opportunities to be creative and innovative; mixed age groupings to think critically and solve problems together.
Opportunity and Accessibility
Growth of learners’ passions and love for learning; hands-on learning for the 21st century; varied approaches to teaching and learning; environments supportive of any background, culture, or ability.
Resilience and Mindfulness
Development of social-emotional skills such as awareness and confidence; values of character and stewardship; openness to ideas and change; willingness to collaborate and work together.
Education is not one-size-fits all and children should be encouraged to explore their passions
Character matters and children should be given the opportunities to develop trustworthiness, respect, responsibility, fairness, caring, and citizenship.
All children are capable of accomplishing their goals and achieving greatness.
