middle school education for an evolving world
The days at Embark Education are rarely alike and don’t follow a traditional schedule based on arbitrary blocks of time. Instead they sync with the ebb and flow of the student’s projects and research and are guided by our education team who are leveraging the constant and natural learning opportunities within our environments to integrate education in a relevant and meaningful way. Embark Education has a daily schedule built around projects, not periods and because of this, every week looks different. Below is an example of how the flow of a week might look at Embark Education.
Start and end time
The adolescent brain is on a different schedule than the adult brain and current research supports a later start time, so our official school day begins at 9:00am with an all “Community Meeting.” This is our time to discuss projects, share updates and strengthen our overall community. The official school day ends at 3:00pm with our “Community Reflection.”
However, the learning hub and our education team are open and available by 8am and until 4pm to allow for flexible arrival and departure and give time in the day for work.
