The Learner-Centered Movement

A learner-centered approach to education requires instruction to be strategically designed to meet students’ individual developmental needs and interests. As such, students are active participants in constructing their learning with unlimited potential. Students' growth is guided and accelerated by our teachers - not only through academics supported by social and emotional learning, but through the understanding that people learn in different ways. Grounded in neuroscience, that essential insight makes the highest standards accessible to all.  

As its name suggests, this approach “places every learner at its center, structures the system to build appropriate supports around him or her, and acknowledges the need to adapt and alter to meet the needs of all children… Each child’s interests, passions, dreams, skills, and needs shape his or her learning experience and drive the commitments and actions of the adults and communities supporting him or her.”
