Learning

Strong academic programming is a hallmark of a Holy Comforter education. We continuously evolve our curriculum and seek out learning tools and programs that inspire our students, empower our teachers and engage the classroom.
 

Where curiosity, creativity and enthusiastic learning drive our children.

We know the Preschool years are critical to forming the foundation for success in life. The building blocks laid now will not only prepare your child for later academic learning, but also for social well-being and emotional strength. It is here that we cultivate joy, playfulness and growth.
Preschool

Where exploration, communication and teamwork is our everyday.

In lower school, your child will build on the foundation laid in the centers-based environment of the early childhood years. Children thrive by actively participating in whole group learning, small group instruction, and independent assignments, with room for games, collaboration and creativity. It is here that we build a love for lifelong learning. Lower School

Where independence, perseverance, resilience, and self-advocacy become second nature.

We believe that the middle school years aren‘t simply a prelude to high school, they yield rich capstone and leadership experiences. Your child is encouraged to take risks in the spirit of learning, look beyond personal fears, and passionately pursue their interests. It is here that we develop personal autonomy, fostering independent learners and thinkers. Middle School

The HCES Way

We know more today about student learning than we have at any other time in the history of formal education. While traditional foundations remain effective, many new methods for learning are emerging. As stewards of our students’ intellectual curiosity, we commit ourselves to exploring engaging opportunities for our students to embrace their passion for discovery. The HCES Way

George Couros

Technology should be at the point of instruction and be as accessible in learning as a pencil; it shouldn’t be an event.  How many pencil labs do you have in your school?
