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.
Our son is gifted, yet is twice exceptional and that interferes with his learning and success at school. He needs smaller classes and help with executive function, and his anxiety and frustration eat away at his confidence every day. Private school is financially out of the question for us, so Whole Life Charter School would be an amazing solution for him!—
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
