Competency-Based Education

Ensuring that students have the knowledge and skills they need

Our competency model is rooted in the belief that every student can succeed when they take ownership over their own learning and have quality teachers who personalize instruction. We know that learning is a process that takes time, practice, and feedback. We also know that students develop gaps when they have to move on to new content before they are ready.

As students work through their curriculum they have check-ins along the way. These lessons, quizzes, and tests help their teachers evaluate whether or not the students have the knowledge and skills needed to progress through the curriculum. If students need more support, our teachers intervene with different strategies and resources to help the student meet the learning targets.

"In a competency-based system, students advance to higher levels of learning when they demonstrate mastery of concepts and skills regardless of time, place, or pace."
