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.
As students begin their journey at Humanex, the main focus is on learning how to learn and how to use the first two levels of the personal growth pyramid. As they build confidence, grow, and mature they will increasingly use all levels of this pyramid. We also know that growth in these areas is not linear and at times we will see students move backward before progressing once again. 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 for them. 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 skills they will use for a lifetime.
