SCL Conference 2012

ABSTRACT:

Signature educational programs can distinguish one school from another in markets that offer attractive options to prospective parents. At Geneva Orlando we created a program for seniors that combines a research thesis, oral defense, a comprehensive "Western Narrative" history experience, academic mentoring, symposiums with faculty, and opportunities to be invited to "Great Conversations" held in the community. Together with our classical curriculum and AP courses, we intend for this signature program to compete with IB programs and other schools that annually attract students away from Geneva. What is your school doing to ensure that students are motivated to the highest levels of academic excellence within our liberal arts tradition?
