Path 5 – Life-Coaching is another important component of The Academy Way school model. Life-Coaching creates a socially-emotional nurturing environment at all of our schools. We are focused on creating school enviroments where students feel socially, emotionally and physically safe. We are so focused on this, that we begin every school day with Life-Coaching.
For 20-30 minutes each morning, topics under 1 or more of the 5 areas below are discussed. During this time, we divide our entire student body into small groups to talk about LIFE. Nothing interrupts this time. That’s how significant we deem this time for the health and well-being of our school and children.
Age and grade-level dependent, we focus discussions in these 5 areas:
- 1. Current Events
- 2. Self-Awareness and Self-Improvement
- 3. Serving Others
- 4. Manners
- 5. Relationships
It is our goal for each student to create a meaningful relationship with an adult during Life-Coaching. With this, our Life-Coaches are able to guide and support them through school and life struggles when they arise. Special bonds are created between students as well during our Life-Coaching environment.
As students get older, we create gender specific and smaller-sized groups. When possible, an adult of the same gender as the students is assigned to each Life-Coaching group. Any information a student shares during Life-Coaching that may jeopardize their emotional or physical safety is immediately shared with parents.
