Essential Skills, Areas of Self-Discovery, and learned outcomes
Communication, Critical Thinking and Decision Making, Creative Engagement, Innovation and Design Thinking, and Mindfulness are the essential skills needed to succeed in an ever-changing world. Practice of these skills are threaded through all aspects of The Mastery Approach.
At the core of the Mastery Approach is a process of profound individualized active self-discovery, a learning journey for each student that is tailored to each students’ interests, passions, goals, beliefs, and strengths. Active self-discovery is built on the foundation of six pillars of deeper learning: Exploration, Partnerships, Community, Intensives, Wellness, and Academics. These areas of self-discovery provide an opportunity for our students to utilize their skills and knowledge that have depth and purpose in their educational journey preparing them for a world marked by diversity and change.
The Essential Skills are investigated through the Areas of Self-Discovery and are demonstrated by students in the Learned Outcomes. Learned Outcomes serve as the basis for evaluation are are illustrated in each student's portfolio.
