Life outcomes typically correlate more to core competencies such as passion, creativity, empathy, cognition and resilience than to years in school or college. This is why frontiers of knowledge and ability are very often advanced by those who are rich in one or more of these capacities. And yet, despite mounting evidence that one can design experiences to develop and strengthen these competencies, these are rarely the direct objectives of a curriculum. Isn't that very frustrating? If you believe, like us, that the promise of our children's potential is too valuable to be left to osmosis, then, it may be time to take a closer look at Sankalpa Academy!
Sankalpa Academy is a private school in the Mueller neighborhood of Austin, Texas that pursues excellence in early childhood education. We believe that purposeful achievement and belonging give children a strong sense of joy and pride and thus strengthen the cycle of further engagement and growth. At Sankalpa, every child receives a gifted education through an Individualized Learning Plan (ILP). At the heart of our lesson plans and every child's ILP is our model for the learning cycle. It us built around the child's climate (environment, engagement - inside and outside the classroom and belief system) and six competencies: curiosity, cognition, empathy, ambition, creativity and communication.
