Research shows that students are more likely to achieve academically when they are involved in a learning environment that is emotionally healthy, stimulating, and sets high expectations.
As we reflect on the past year, it is always our hope that at Corbett Prep, our families know that we value every moment with every student. Our focus is to ensure that every child is visible, cared about, and challenged to embrace academic excellence moving forward to meet and exceed the individual's needs and levels. In addition, embedded in learning are opportunities and lessons designed to develop wisdom, mindfulness, self-reflection, and a lifelong learning mentality. We also want our students to experience the joy of giving to others and contributing to the greater community.
