“It is easy to keep in touch, because we participate in school year meetings where we play games, write about our goals and obstacles and discuss what is going on in or lives.”
UNDERGRAD SCHOOL YEAR GATHERINGS
Undergrad gatherings are created around our 9-month, mission-based curriculum. Children set their own goals, overcome obstacles by identifying and utilizing their resources and experience self-confidence gained through these efforts.
The Undergrad gatherings occur each month beginning in September and concluding in May. Students utilize the Passport to Success, which is designed to track the child’s progress through the school year curriculum. Additions are made to the Passport each month providing a year end compilation of writing samples, goals, challenges and ideas.

POST GRAD SCHOOL YEAR GATHERINGS
At structured, school year meetings, Post Grads are challenged to examine their lives, assess the consequences of their decisions, examine their motivations, and evaluate their short- and long-term goals. By exploring life’s obstacles, challenges and new experiences, young people determine how they can make a contribution to team building. The team gains its strength and momentum based on understanding, cohesiveness and leadership. Post Grads are faced with a higher level of personal responsibility, freedom, the expectation of thoughtful decision-making and the requirement to demonstrate respect for one another.
