The High School Curriculum
If a goal of education is to equip students with the knowledge to succeed and be happy in their lives, then practical life skills should be taught along with academic subjects.
Our senior year Skills for Life course intended to help up-and-coming adults live healthy, happy and effective lives whatever their field of endeavor. They encompass the best books that have been written on topics like goal setting, time management, nutrition, fitness, meditation, interpersonal communication, leadership and personal finance.
The twelfth grade curriculum also includes a one-semester course in business fundamentals and entrepreneurship. Even if students do not plan to become entrepreneurs, an understanding of how business works will help them interact effectively with companies over the course of their lives and careers.
