Why Aspire

What Makes Aspire Unique?

Neurocentric Approach

Learners work with our Neurological Specialist to learn how to apply presonalize, direct inputs to their brain and nervous system to create high performance outputs.

Inspire Passionate Learners

Learners are nurtured to find and pursue their passions, which gives them the drive necessary for lifelong learning and purpose.

Learner-Governed Environment

Their involvement in every aspect of the Aspire experience and the “learner-governed” atmosphere that creates, leads learners to a sense of responsibility, accountability, and self-leadership.

Personalized Learning Plans

Each learner and their family will work closely with our Head of School to develop personalized learning plans so they can excel within their unique path.  

Entrepreneurship & Internships

Learners learn self-confidence, resilience, communication, problem-solving, creativity, goal setting, empathy, and lessons through mistakes. They learn that communication is key to collaborative problem solving; creativity breeds solutions for different needs with new ideas; goal-setting allows for achievement progressions towards a shared vision, as well as understanding of the community their business serves.

Deep Respect of Individualism

We provide a safe space for learners to grow, and guide them about the world so they can make informed decisions necessary for true independence. We encourage personal responsibility in all aspects of life, while providing support and guidance.

Project-Based Learning

Research shows that everyone learns better by doing, which is why we offer a variety of project-based and holistic learning methods such as individualized curriculum, continual learning-style analysis, and self and peer accountability.  

Socratic Discussions

Learners engage in higher-order thinking, are encouraged to reflect and examine multiple perspectives of real world issues and relevant topics, learning through one another’s diverse opinions.

EQ & Mindfulness Practices

We support awareness, understanding, and the ability to express and manage one’s emotions.  Children who are able to inhibit impulses (often driven by emotions) and manage distractions are able to engage in more pro-social behaviors and accomplish their goals.  Furthermore, children whom engage in practice of such applied intelligence reinforce the methods and development in one another. 

Numerous studies show mindfulness education — lessons on techniques to calm the mind and body — can reduce the negative effects of stress and increase students‘ ability to stay engaged, helping them stay on track, enjoy the journey, and avoid behavior problems.  We guide them to self-regulate and understand themselves in utilizing these techniques, when needed.
