Student-centered learning

New Harmony uses student-centered learning to meet the educational goals of each student.

  • Students are part of small learning communities consisting of 15 students called an advisory
  • Advisories are led by an advisor, a teacher who forms relationships with each of their students
  • Students are the center of their learning so that their education is rigorous and relevant
  • 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
  • Students work in courses with content teachers to gain the skills necessary to earn credit towards graduation

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.
