Preparing students to productively and meaningfully contribute to the 21st century requires educators to rethink the traditional curriculum and schedule models that have shaped U.S. schools since the Industrial Revolution. Bosque School’s philosophy of Challenging Education
does just that. Today’s global, interconnected, ever-changing, and highly digital world demands students to think critically, engage deeply with and apply their learning across disciplines, communicate and collaborate within diverse communities, and creatively and boldly approach the challenges and opportunities of the future.
We commit to Challenging Education
through both our regular rotation classes—where students acquire and build upon critical skills and content knowledge—and through our three-week immersive courses—a dedicated space and time for students to apply their learning and skills in relevant, real-life situations that extend the learning environment beyond the four walls of a classroom, launching in May of 2022. Relevance unlocks doors of imagination, excitement, and intrinsic motivation to learn. Experiences that extend beyond the physical campus boundaries additionally offer powerful opportunities for the exploration of real-world ideas and problems, engagement in pre-professional learning, and even deeper community engagement and partnerships. Research shows, and our students affirm, that they learn best when they are actively engaged with teachers and facilitators who can help unlock their curiosity and help identify and explore their passions.
The goal of immersives is to maintain and enhance the kinds of learning experiences our students and alumni find most transformative, while refining and redesigning ways to integrate disciplines and further deepen learning. As a manifestation of our commitment to our mission and core value
of Inspiring Academic Excellence
, a new schedule will launch in the 2021-22 academic year. This new schedule will have all students taking up to seven courses in the regular rotation (August-April) and then shifting into one additional course—an immersive—that they have chosen from a catalog of options and is entirely dedicated to “immersing” themselves in that subject area, without distraction, over three full weeks in May.
