About Atherton Academies International
Atherton Academies International The development of Pathway to university programs, specialising in English language and aviation English skill development. School partnerships. Training and supply of teachers. The Academy will follow 21st Century curriculum objectives in preparing students for a wide range of problem-solving skills alongside their core skills development. With success based upon the achievement of a personal pathway lined with a range of achievements both personal and part of a team or group. Our students will be provided with a number of core skills in how to learn, which is missing from teaching and learning, with a universal list of “critical competencies” for citizens and workers from leaders in business, industry and government: • personal responsibility, • ability to act in principled, ethical fashion, • skill in oral and written communication, • interpersonal and team skills, • skills in critical thinking and problem-solving, • respect for people different from oneself, • ability to change, • ability and desire for lifelong learning. Students should learn to: • effectively communicate orally, visually, in writing, and in a second language • understand and employ quantitative and qualitative analysis to solve problems • interpret and evaluate information from a variety of sources • understand and work within complex systems and with diverse groups • demonstrate intellectual agility and the ability to manage change • transform information into knowledge and knowledge into judgment and action Emphasizes learning that includes “ways of investigating human society and the natural world”, including: • the human imagination, expression, and the products of many cultures • the interrelations within and among global and cross-cultural communities • means of modelling the natural, social, and technical worlds • the values and histories underlying U.S. democracy Furthermore, to ensure citizenry with social responsibility, education should foster: • intellectual honesty • responsibility for society’s moral health and for social justice • active participation as a citizen of a diverse democracy • discernment of the ethical consequences of decisions and actions • deep understanding of one’s self and respect for the complex identities of others, their histories, and their cultures. Agricultural Work Assignments We believe that there should be a primary agricultural work component that provides students with a series of agricultural experiences, including hydroponic skills/knowledge, plus general agricultural subsistence farming, with a series of lectures from TED and other sources, reflecting upon environmental issues and outcomes. Work Experience: Offer work experience programs that would add to the student’s real- life English skills, thus we need to investigate the availability of WORK EXPERIENCE and possible internships in Australia.
