At the very heart of ResponsiveEd’s mission is an unwavering commitment to provide hope for students. But what is “hope”? Hope is the desire or expectation that something good will be obtained or fulfilled. By its very nature then, hope conveys a sense of optimism and potential. Unfortunately, for many students, hope is elusive. The “something good” that they desire may not seem attainable, much less expected.
When it comes to hope in the area of education, as in all other areas of life, the “something good” desired by each student is different. For some, the “something good” may be finding a school whose academic program aligns with their unique interests or life circumstances (e.g., classical, credit-recovery, STEM, college-prep, vocational, homeschooling, etc.). For others, it may be finding a school whose instructional methodology complements their particular learning style (e.g., lecture, project-based, Socratic discussion, reading-based, etc.). Still, for others, it may be as simple (and as complex) as finding a school with a culture that reflects their values (e.g., moral education, service-oriented, civics-minded, etc.).
Recognizing that each student desires a different “something good,” ResponsiveEd offers a variety of educational options—options that reflect the diverse interests, goals, and learning styles of our students. Together with innovative programs being offered by so many other public and private educators, we believe that such educational options provide students with more opportunities to obtain the “something good” they desire out of their education.
And while ResponsiveEd may offer a variety of educational options to its students, each option is built on a common foundation—i.e., the promotion of a free society and the cultivation of moral and academic excellence.
