“There is existing in man, a mass of sense lying in a dormant state, and which, unless something excites it to action, will descend with him, in that condition, to the grave.” Thomas Paine
I believe in the school system and that it should do three things well:
- Help the student discover who they are, build emotional intelligence, find what invigorates them and their competencies.
- Teach the student the essential core while meeting or exceeding the standard.
- Help the student prepare and create a career-path or higher educational goal and acquaint them with the resources to be successful in it.
Through quality educational processes, meeting or exceeding the essential standard core, Federal and State requirements is necessary.
Thrusting student ambition and motivation by a healthy belief in themselves and their unique talents is critical towards intrinsic motivation.
Challenging and encouraging each student in the path of their greatest strength and competency’s, while helping them to the essential core standard in their weakness is only right.
Preparing and familiarizing the student of their future target of: higher learning, occupational/vocational training and or professional certifications will help them avoid confusion, student debt, dropping out of college, malaise, mediocrity and educational melancholy.
With the many resources available, we can, by partnering not just with colleges, but other vocational professionals and occupational industries; positively influence, reveal and introduce the student to the many options available to fit them. Through this program, they discover and choose through ongoing research of themselves, a plan A, plan B, and plan C directional scenario goal and arrive at one before they exit High School, but also with a back up plan. This essential growth from K-12 and vision of purpose will set each student up to find their future.
Through ongoing K-12 interpersonal and interactive courses: help the student, teachers, counselors, and parents (community) discover, the students talents, interests, personality, self-identity, and inherent competence together. And while identifying these qualities and progressively setting supportive goals towards meeting their competencies, success is not far away. As the students arrive in high school, by exploring the many options and opportunities available in alignment to their directional purpose and intrinsic motivators, their purpose comes into focus. Assisting the student towards important milestones, helping them clearly understand their development in the: cognitive, physical and socio-emotional stages is equally important. Exciting each students potential and ability to self-actualize and achieve is the vision. Many students will then stay in our community, serve our community well, just as we serve them well.
We believe each child is endowed with special gifts and inherent talents to be unlocked.
