What Makes The Learnatory's "Envision Success" Program So Special?
Our Goals, Roles, Procedures, Relationships
We aspire to significantly contribute to the transformation of today’s students from passive recipients to active lifelong learners through creating change in the way they see themselves, their purpose, and their value to society. We want them to believe in themselves and find the solutions that best work for them developing agency and grit.
While college may not be the best option for every student, we want every student to have the necessary qualifications and to be able to make that personal choice for themselves. We believe every student can and must achieve high standards.
We believe it is not the content that matters most, but the delivery of that content that is most productive when done by trained professionals who set high expectations for their learners and encourage learners to set higher expectations for themselves.
We incorporate academic and global skills and knowledge necessary to navigate the world—attributes and dispositions such as problem-solving, curiosity, creativity, innovation, communication, interpersonal skills, the ability to synthesize across disciplines, global awareness, ethics, and technological expertise.
We focus on immersive interactive and hands-on experiences where students are incorporating STEAM knowledge into real-world problem solving and beginning to see STEAM as an enterprise through which they can create wealth and a future for themselves.
At all levels, the focus is on the application and transfer of knowledge and skills to address real-world social, economic, and environmental issues, and seek real solutions.
The strength of our program is tied to the strength of our relationships with our learners, parents, schools, community, and corporate partners. Our high standards and expectations pertain to everyone connected with our program. We aim to help permeate our aspirations for our learners’ success throughout every connection we make.
