The youngest of students are learning pioneers. Offer them a joyful education of hands-on discovery, collaboration with community, and holistic knowledge-building — and be a part of their embarking on the adventure of lifelong learning.
Young scholars are poised to “own” their education. It’s exciting to see them eager to immerse themselves in a variety of learning opportunities — where parents, teachers, and fellow students support them in their exploration of who they are and in imagining who they will become.
College-bound students go deep on the topics and activities that will shape their future. This nexus of mastering academics and pursuing interests is what makes for the transformation of young adults into young leaders.
