Lay the Groundwork for a Better Future
Most parents hope to lay the groundwork for a better future for their children. They invest in environments that will teach their children the importance of performance and achievement in the classroom, and on the field, or on the ice or anywhere else they will strive for success in life.
That parental hope is two fold: Excellence, and results. Parents know that excellence is not something that suddenly happens. It is an ongoing, everyday effort that, over time, adds up and produces the things sought after; results.
Whether that is in leadership, performance, or attitude, excellence needs to be ingrained and practiced each and every day, in order to yield maximum results.
While delivering a superior academic experience, Everest allows students more time to practice and train in their endeavor, passion, or SKILL. Our S.E.L.F. platform champions the dedicated student because we believe that the discipline and rigor of a SKILL builds lasting character and achievement throughout life.
Steps to Choosing a SKILL
Step 1 – Students need to identify what they are passionate about, or what activity they would enjoy doing in an intensive way. Throughout the month of September, students can experience a number of SKILLS if they are uncertain of the SKILL they want to commit to. Students commit to the SKILLs at the end of the month.
Step 2 – Once a SKILL is identified, students need to decide what “stream” they would like to register for – Prep or Pre-prep. If a student chooses the Pre-prep stream, that student will choose a secondary SKILL to complete his or her year. For the Prep stream, the student may need to experience a try-out to validate the appropriateness of the choice.
