Institute for 21st Century Education
In today's world, yesterday's educational designs simply are not enough. Students need more than the ability to excel in the traditional academic disciplines. They need what Hathaway Brown's Institute for 21st Century Education provides: the chance to unleash their creativity; the freedom to discover an authentic self and to explore different ways of telling their stories; and a practiced competency in how to get big things done in a world that doesn't operate by the conventions of a classroom syllabus.
The Primary School's part of the Institute for 21st Century Education helps each girl build her foundation of knowledge and skills while also helping her identify passions and talents. Girls enter the Primary School with experience in discovery learning and creative exploration.
Our stimulating core curriculum is supported by, and integrated with, a variety of specialty classes. It is the combination of these experiences which builds a foundation, fosters exploration, and makes a permanent impression on our young students.
