|Education and Learning for Healthy Communities
Spectrum Academy - Holistic Education & Learning
Originally designed for at-risk youth in Arizona, USA, the concept includes a peer community council, natural cycle-driven goals and objectives for staff and students, housing reflective of ergonomic and eco-sensitive designs, a community technology center and holistic curriculum.
Holistic education is concerned with the growth of every person's intellectual, emotional, social, physical, artistic, creative and spiritual potentials. Future leaders in the research, design, and implementation of holistic education using state-of-the-art technologies, the village design is edu-centric with our most precious concerns, developing children, at the center.
Alliances and partnerships with industry leaders bridge 21st Century learners with 21st Century technology, assisting our emerging healthy global culture. We need to provide an alternative state-of-the-art holistic educational and living environment for school age youth using experimental and proven programs that result in healthy and productive young adults who contribute to the community and society. Shifting paradigms to align with Nature and natural order is essential for sustainability.
