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.
After a very frustrating four years at our public school ( K-3rd grade), my son began attending a private school for children with learning differences. The results have been remarkable but I can no longer afford the substantial tuition. I could never afford it in the first place, but I knew my son would not have learned to read if he had stayed in public school. The financial sacrifice has been huge but necessary for my son’s future. For financial reasons, this will be his last year at this wonderful place. A good education should not be so inaccessible for kids with language based learning disabilities and ADHD! Thank you for your persistence and dedication to this greatly needed charter school— enrollment interest form comment, Abington School District
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
