At Humanex Academy we help guide students and parents on a journey of personal growth and academic progress. Our environment allows students to be themselves and to truly thrive within a school environment. We build confidence, social skills, emotional strength, and intelligence in each student by focusing on building positive and trusting relationships. This allows for corrective redirection and in-the-moment social coaching in a manner that doesn’t make students feel like a problem to be fixed. Our goal for every student is to find personal fulfillment and their place in the world beyond Humanex.
A student’s academic progress is a byproduct of their ability to be curious, accept support, communicate, to be accountable to others, and to use the other skills in our personal growth model.
Through this model our goal for students is that they develop the critical life skills of Showing Up On Time, Meeting Expectations, Getting Along With Others, and learning to Hold Themselves Accountable for these skills on a daily basis. This, however, is now where we start.
As students begin their developmental journey at Humanex, the main focus is on the skills of Being Curious, Communication of Needs, and the Acceptance of Support. As they build confidence, grow, and mature they will increasingly use all levels of this pyramid where the focus shifts toward increasing levels of Emotional Awareness, the Development of Persistence, and being Accountable to Others.
We know that no student will take on this challenge in the same manner and maintaining progress can be quite the balancing act. Some students may come in with more skills initially, but grow slowly, while others may come in with minimal skills and progress at a higher rate. Either way, our program is designed to ensure students feel good about where they are and progress in a manner that makes sense to them.
To this end, our focus is on generating and maintaining momentum that is sustainable on an individual basis. We want all of our students to embrace this challenge of balancing a pyramid on its point and to learn that the resilience required to do this, while challenging, can be both fun and fulfilling. These are the lifelong skills they will use.
