Authentic Learning

Students today are more connected and informed than any other generation in history. They know about racism, gender bias, hate crimes, suicide, abuse, police shootings, etc. So how are students dealing with this information? Do they understand it? Are they afraid to ask questions or talk to their classmates? The result of this information overload has created stress for teenagers. Therefore, we developed an authentic educational framework rooted in making learning relevant, real-world, and purposeful in a safe and holistic environment. Students are encouraged and empowered to draw on their experiences and have critical conversations about current, local, and world issues and events. Our program is structured to help students connect what’s happening today to the systems and patterns of the past.
