What Is Fresh Education?
What is Fresh Education?
Tired of the “One-Size-Fits-All” Approach to Education?
A center for independent learning, Fresh Education was founded to provide highly personalized experiences for each individual, determined by each scholar’s particular strengths, needs, and interests.
We recognize that all learners deserve to discover their strengths and interests through an individualized curriculum and cultivated community relationships.
The Fresh Education model is based on the best practices in Personalized Learning from across the country and around the globe. Scholars start the day with their Mentor to set goals and, together, determine the processes and tools they will use to accomplish their goals and assess their progress towards them.
Goals may be academic, socio-emotional, physical, or a combination of each. Online assessment tools are used as a starting point for setting academic goals, then a plan is created to support each scholar’s individual needs.
Mentors and Scholars, along with parents/guardians, review goals often and reflect on the progress made toward them.
Fresh Education as a Nonprofit Organization
The founders of Fresh Education recognized an educational need and then discovered a path to filling that need!
To that end, Fresh Education was founded as a nonprofit organization with the goal that philanthropic donors would see the need for equity in education and fund the programs to support scholarships for underserved youth!
Funding supports program development, staffing, and food programs for Fresh Education youth.
To offer an educational choice for unique learners within a personalized and collaborative blended learning environment, facilitated through restorative justice practices.
To equip each child with a love of learning, inquiry, critical thinking, problem-solving, and opportunities to thrive.
