Our mission is to educate future change makers — young people with the brilliance to shape the future, and the wisdom to make it one worth creating. Imagine a group of curious, articulate, passionate children. Gifted learners with a diverse set of skills and capabilities. What will they need to fulfill this mission? What foundation can we provide that will stand firm in an era of rapid change? Our answer is that they need a blend of academic (or cognitive) skills — blended and integrated with social and emotional skills. They need to be able to see and solve problems, and also consider the human implications. They need to be able to innovate to break new ground, and also have the restraint to preserve what’s worth sustaining. They need skills to assimilate many forms of data, both logical and emotional, and use this to make better and better decisions.
