School Notes

Fifty years of education research has confirmed what many of us know:  students learn in different ways and at different paces. A textbook may communicate a concept to some children adequately,while a hands-on demonstration works for others. Blended learning leverages technology to empower teachers to customize an educational plan and its pacingfor each student`s unique needs while tracking their mastery. Teachers can then focus their traditional classroom instructionon individuals and small-groups, producing special lesson plansbased on real-time student results.
The impact of blended learning is undeniable: Students who are behind in a subject quickly catch up. Students who are at-level or above continue to improve and excel.The pace of their learning is not dependent on the rest of the class.
As stated in our Mission: "Though many parts, we are all one body in Christ. We promote respect for all persons' individual differences. Our purpose is to assist parents and families in fostering the spiritual, moral, intellectual, social, artistic, and physical development of the whole person." 
With respect to individual differences, the blended learning model will foster the development of the whole person.
