A program summary follows below.

Program Summary:
In an effort to best prepare students for the ever-changing, multi-cultural society, it is more vital than ever for students to receive a holistic education. Students' cognitive growth potential is maximized when attention is also given to other facets of personal development. This presentation is designed around the holistic development of these elements.  

Mind and Head:  As students begin to develop their intellectual capabilities, special attention is needed for intellectual growth. Critical thinking skills are imperative for students to be able to connect classroom lessons to real-world applications.

Heart and Spirit: The emotional, moral, spiritual, and social development of a student is critical to the student's holistic education. Building relationships, expressing emotions, and working cohesively with a group are a few of the needed skills students develop throughout the P-16 educational process. 

Hand and Body:  Personal physical wellness and a student’s learning environment contribute to the overall education of the student. Students learn best in secure and safe environments. In addition, the accessibility of technical training continues to remain an valid option for students.
