At SSFS we seek to educate children in all areas of their lives so that they may become effective citizens of the world. As such, the thematic content of our new syllabus is organized around addressing the following query: how do we educate the whole child in our increasingly connected, global community?
With this guiding principle in mind, we focused the program on eight content areas: Social Justice, Culture, Mindfulness, Financial Literacy, Sexual Health/Consent, Emotional Intelligence, Digital Citizenship, and Diversity.
Throughout the academic year, every two weeks our boarders will participate in an interactive presentation spanning a variety of current and relevant topics relating to our eight areas of study. Students also have the opportunity to reflect and journal on the subject matter via our new subscription to Thrively, a multifaceted, convertible learning platform.
