Educational Statement of Purpose

The school's current description of its educational approach

Original Publication Date: Adopted by the Board of Trustees in 2013

In 2013, after a number of years of meeting and drafting, the Board of Trustees adopted this description of the Roeper Educational Model. In it, the school points out that its educational approach is particularly suitable for gifted students, but that the model holds validity for all forms of education. The importance of authentic relationships, of giving all students a voice, of presenting multiple perspectives, of focusing on problems, projects and complex questions, and of an institution committed to equality and justice, among other elements, are the path to nurturing empowered, engaged adults.
