Motivation for human beings is generally derived from choice and from the feeling of success and accomplishment. The educational program at Outlook Christian School is designed to meet both of these needs:
When students are given learning goals that they are able to meet, their success increases their willingness to take risks and increases the effort they put into their learning. Success breeds success.
Students use quality curricula in whole-class and small-group instruction in order to learn concepts, but we don’t stop there. Students are encouraged to use what they’ve learned to create projects, to share this newfound knowledge—and thus demonstrate their achievements—with their peers and adults, and to apply this information to real-world situations so that they are better able to grasp the purpose for their learning.
Students not only learn core academic subjects, but life skills as well. For example, children learn service of others through older students helping younger students. Students also learn interpersonal and communication skills through which they develop the character traits of being caring, trustworthy, and fair.
At Outlook Christian School we place emphasis on students learning how to learn, not just learning content. We help students discover their personal learning style and teach them student skills that help them be successful.
As students enter high school, they are instructed in the details of earning credits and graduation requirements. We create credit plans and set educational goals based on requirements, as well as student interest. We meet quarterly to assess progress towards goals.
