Compass Outreach and Education Center encourages teachers to break away from the everyday "hum-drum" of teaching. The curriculum does not rely on textbooks but is driven by projects and learning experiences that help students understand and develop meaningful skills. Teachers are challenged to think outside the box and utilize project-based learning and blended strategies to create lessons and activities for students that will awaken their natural sense of curiosity.

We started by creating a small, safe environment that would support student learning and reignite students' desire to learn and become creative thinkers while allowing them 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 students can use in their personal lives. 

 

The program's platform strives to foster growing independence and accountability. Students are taught to be curious and seek knowledge through the many opportunities that transform them into curious, compassionate, creative, and confident individuals.   The curriculum emphasizes 21st-century skills where collaboration and critical thinking are essential to learning.

The Compass Outreach and Education Center's philosophy is that young children 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 an environment based on project-based learning, nature education, and a 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 to cultivating a lifelong passion for learning and exploration fused to serve as the foundation of our academic program. Our "strategic fun and eclectic learning" utilizes music, art, finger play, storytime, 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 dimmer a child's innate desire to learn.
