A Holistic Emphasis on Social and Emotional Growth

It infuses the development of five key capacities across artistic, academic, and residential learning: mindfulness, wellness, and resilience; creative capacity; interdisciplinary perspective and collaboration; global and cultural perspective; and community and citizen artistry.
