21st Century Learning

In the 21st Century approach to learning, teachers not only engage students by connecting to their needs, gifts, talents, and interests, but strive to use approaches that will prepare our students for the future God is leading them to. In the rapidly changing world we live in, it is important for students to understand how to investigate, collaborate, and problem-solve using real-world concerns. 


So what does this look like in the classroom? Following is an array of curricular developments your child will experience:


  • Use of more active and engaging teaching methods

  • Increased focus on how to help students learn best

  • Increase in learner-focused, not teacher focused instruction

  • More actively involving the students in the learning process through Project Based Learning

  • Allowing for brainstorming and creativity and problem-solving

  • Implementing more meaningful and relevant teaching

  • Integration of critical and creative thinking using Bloom’s Taxonomy

  • Creating an atmosphere of growth and engagement

  • Using best teaching practices in relation to neuroscience research

  • Use of additional service learning opportunities
