An introduction to the Whole Life Charter School
The Whole Life Charter School will be a tuition-free public school for Pennsylvania students in grades k-12.
Each child is a unique individual with a singular personality, particular talents, interests, academic strengths and academic weaknesses. Some children decode the written word with great comprehension and compose lyrical paragraphs with ease while others are nothing less than artful when expressing their understanding of the world around them with paint on canvas, lego blocks, song, or a whirlwind of movement. We designed every facet of the Whole Life Charter School so that our faculty and staff have the tools, the skill sets, the peer and administrative support, and the latitude to creatively respond to the particular needs of each learner and facilitate each child’s education. Based on the results of schools employing teaching models and tools similar to ours, graduates of the Whole Life Charter School will be thoroughly prepared to advance their education in college and throughout their careers.
I just found out through a parents group on Facebook that you were trying to open a school in Springfield Township. My son has ADD and learning differences. He has had an IEP since first grade. I feel that his needs are not being met and that the school environment that he is in right now is not maximizing his potential. I cannot afford a private school and after looking through your website, I feel that the Whole Life Charter School would be an incredible fit for my son. Please keep me posted to let me know what we would need to do to move forward with this. He is in 5th grade right now.—
While we will offer an extraordinary educational option to any student, we have designed our program with a profound sensitivity towards the needs of students who have underperformed in traditional schools because of “invisible” learning disabilities such as Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and Asperger’s Syndrome as well as students who have simply disengaged from schools practicing more traditional educational models.
Our educational model creatively combines:
- Customized education plans that support each child’s learning styles
- Emphasis on social and emotional development
- Instructional support that allows each child to progress at their own speed
- Project-centric teaching methods that encourage students to leverage deep personal interests and make personally meaningful connections to the worlds of math, science, history, and language
