Practical, Data Driven Educational Experiences For Students

Summer 2022

The Compass Academy Network Curriculum

During the 4-week summer session, students engage in a curriculum that covers topics in Mathematical Reasoning & Decision-Making, Civic Leadership, Creative Writing, Personal Development, Artistic Expression, and Team Building. Classes are taught by our team of experienced educators with support from Peer Mentors. Compass Academy Network’s curriculum gives students opportunities to connect classroom learning to their everyday lives and to think critically about their own growth. 

Through a rich and interactive curriculum, the Compass Academy Network program is designed to inspire students to find joy in learning, develop a deeper understanding of their strengths and passions, acquire the academic and social competencies necessary to succeed, discover the essential elements of their own moral compass and the character and confidence to reach for their dreams, and to connect with educators, peer mentors, and other students in a supportive community. 

The CAN Program

Key Classes
MATHEMATICAL REASONING & DECISION MAKING

Through hands-on learning, students will advance their skills and understanding of key concepts such as logical decision-making and informational literacy to help them succeed in school and life.

LANGUAGE ARTS

The Language Arts curriculum focuses on developing fundamental communication skills that are essential for success in middle school and beyond. During class, students explore the written and spoken word through poetry, storytelling, and creative writing. Students are given the opportunity to discover different ways to use their voices and to learn how life-long literacy can empower them.

CIVICS & CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT

CAN’s Civics curriculum helps students develop as citizens and leaders. Students will understand and begin to practice what it means to be an engaged citizen in a local, national, and global community. During Civics, students discuss current events and historical issues that affect today’s society. Students explore how to integrate these values and ideas in their lives to contribute to society in new and meaningful ways.

ART

The Arts curriculum allows every student to express their creativity. The curriculum integrates with all of the other courses to create an inter-disciplinary approach that allows students to express their unique vision and perspective in different artistic mediums – from calligraphy to illustration.

Student work is displayed in a gallery for the public to see during the CAN graduation celebrations.

PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT & ACADEMIC SUCCESS

Our Personal Development curriculum teaches students the skills needed to succeed in middle school, high school, college, and beyond. During Personal Development, CAN scholars learn about goal setting, stress management, effective communication, approaches to personal improvement, and the importance of developing critical study and time management skills.

Students work one-on-one with teachers and Peer Mentors to develop strategies that work for every individual. Students follow up with the CAN Team on their Personal Development goals at CAN quarterly meetups.
