K-5 Private Elementary School

We started with the idea of creating a small, safe environment that would not only support student learning, but reignite their desire to learn and become creative thinkers, while allowing students to work

at at their own pace.

Serving Grades K-5, Compass Outreach and Education Center, encourages teachers to break away from the everyday "hum-drum" of teaching. The curriculum does not rely on textbooks; rather, it is driven by projects and learning experiences that help students  show understanding and develop meaningful skills. Teachers are challenged with thinking outside of the box and utilize project-based learning strategies to create lessons and activities for students that will awaken their natural sense of curiosity.

We started with the idea of creating a small, safe environment that would not only support student learning, but reignite their desire to learn and become creative thinkers, while allowing students to work at their own pace. Classes are characterized by innovative instruction, with teachers constantly striving to tailor their assessments to suit the developmental needs of each child.  As we worked through the research and planning process, we decided that the best idea would be to combine project-based and blended learning, while teaching skills that that can use in both their professional and personal lives. 

Students will also have the opportunity to explore entrepreneurship by hands on creation and implementation. Through a range of events, seminars, activities, and working sessions, students will understand how to develop their creative entrepreneurial side. We understand that entrepreneurship may not be for everyone.  However, our goal is to help students understand the concepts of teamwork, creativity, financial stability, planning, and so on from an early age.   

The platform of the program strives to foster growing independence and accountability. Students are taught to be curious and seek knowledge through the many opportunities they have that transform them into curious, compassionate, creative, and confident individuals.   The curriculum has a strong emphasis on 21st century skills were collaboration and critical thinking are essential components to the learning process.

It is the Compass Outreach and Education Center's philosophy for young children to learn through what we call “strategic fun and eclectic learning.” We believe in utilizing a customized curriculum that intertwines four educational concepts which will support a learning environment based on project based learning, nature education, entrepreneurship, and student-centered approach to learning.

Effectively planning the learning experiences through formal lesson planning allows for "strategic fun and eclectic learning."  Themes within the curriculum include everything from teaching the principles of respect, responsibility, and community through exploration and discovery, cultivating a lifelong passion for learning, and exploration fused together to serve as the foundation of our academic program. Our "strategic fun and eclectic learning" utilizes music, art, finger play, story time, discussions, sensory activities, logical thinking, and problem solving. By combining physical, emotional, language and social skills through teacher-directed and child-initiated activities, our school provides a well-balanced learning experience minus the "teaching to the test" mundane approach that can actually dimmer a child's innate desire to learn. 

It's Not About What Teachers Cover; It's About What Students Discover!
