New Harmony uses a student-centered learning design to meet the educational goals of each student.
- Each student at New Harmony is part of a small learning community of 15 students called an advisory
- The advisory is led by an advisor, a teacher who forms individual relationships with each of the students
- The students work with their advisor to develop an individualized learning plan based on the student’s interests.
- Students are the center of their own learning experience so that their education is challenging and relevant.
- Each student has the opportunity to create a project of their own design through an internship with a mentor.
- Parents and families are engaged in the student’s learning process and enrolled in New Harmony alongside their student as resources to the school community.
This structure creates a student-centered learning model at New Harmony, where students are invested in their learning and challenged to pursue their interests by a supportive community of educators, professionals, and family members.
