The Classical Academies strive to prepare students to be successful in the global world. Twenty-first-century learning must enable today’s students to be academically competitive within their community, country, and world. U.S. schools must align classroom environments with real-world environments in order to successfully prepare students to face rigorous higher education coursework, career challenges, and a globally competitive workforce.
As defined by the Partnership for 21st Century Skills Framework, these skills are grouped into three major categories:
- Learning and Innovation Skills
Critical thinking, communication, creativity, and collaboration.
- Information, Media, and Technology Skills
Effectively using, managing, and evaluating information from digital technology and communication tools.
- Life and Career Skills
Flexibility, adaptability, self-direction, teamwork, appreciation of diversity, accountability, and leadership.
The Classical Academies uses a Learning Management System, called Schoology, to develop and deliver academic content, expedite communication between school and home, and monitor student progress through posting and monitoring grades. Families may connect with this virtual classroom anywhere there is internet access.
