We know that working in areas of interest and strength are key ingredients to motivate students as they transition from one grade level to the next. When students work on their core competencies (sets of intellectual, personal, & social and emotional proficiencies) they develop a mindset to engage in deep, lifelong learning.

The Ignite Your Passion programs are designed to ensure students are engaged in the “doing” within the learning areas. Throughout the year, the many formal and informal opportunities help students develop the core competencies. The activities allow students to demonstrate competence in relatively simple and highly supportive situations, to demonstrating independence in more complex and varied contexts.
