Hawthorn Academy will utilize the prestigious International Baccalaureate (IB) Program to ensure that students learn in an environment that promotes ability and awareness. IB is not a program of curriculum content, but rather a highly respected method for organizing and teaching the curriculum of a school’s choosing. Hawthorn Academy has made curriculum choices based on extensive research and documented ccess and believes that the Academy’s core curricula effectively addresses the academic needs of all age and learning levels.
IB focuses on multiple facets of learning and addresses social, physical, emotional and cultural development as well as academic. The program provides opportunity for learners to construct meaning, principally through concept-driven inquiry. The threads of student’s learning are brought together in the trans-disciplinary program of inquiry, which in turn allows them to make connections with life outside the school. Through the curriculum, IB enables students to develop sensitivity to the experiences of others and sets forth the expectation of socially responsible action as a result of the learning experience.
