Why Certify?

Why Certify?

Moving a school to a WHOLE CHILD paradigm through certification...

  • affirms for teachers and students that the school’s instructional culture
  • embraces all the latent talents and potentials that children possess
  • declares to parents and the world the school’s commitment to optimizing
  • children’s opportunities to grow and thrive holistically
  • opens pathways for family and community involvement
  • creates a model for other schools to observe well-rounded, nurturing
  • instructional programs
  • provides witness to the fact that everyone wins when schools can develop
  • rounded and integrated human beings, as opposed to efficient test-takers
  • provides recognition by a national organization that what faculty and
  • leadership are doing has integrity and special value
