Quantum Learning is a brain-based research model that CIVA has implemented for many years. The Quantum Learning network helps students build a strong foundation for success as they develop the skills and traits needed for academic and personal excellence. They are inspired to take ownership of their learning and with a better understanding of the brain and how it works. Students discover their potential as leaders and develop a positive self-culture. They are challenged to set personal and academic goals and guided in how to pursue them. Each portion of the Quantum Learning network helps pour into our local charter high students to encourage character building and support.
Students master essential skills and strategies, including expository reading, writing, and critical thinking. CIVA students that are taught using techniques from the Quantum Learning network are better prepared for the rigors of today’s educational standards and success in every subject. Students are equipped to excel in college and beyond. They hone their academic skills and develop the confidence needed to make intelligent choices as young adults through true character building principles.
Through our Quantum Learning network technique approach, students are taught the 9 keys of excellence. Each month we look at one of the keys in depth and together discover how they apply to day-to-day living. Our goal is to encourage our Colorado Springs charter high school students to take ownership and interest in the character building process so that they become the best that they can be.
9 Keys of Excellence
Spirit of the Game: Maintain a spirit of goodwill in everything we do.
Integrity: Match behavior with values; demonstrate your positive personal values in all you do and say. Be sincere and real.
Make Failure Lead to Success: Learn from your mistakes; view failures as feedback that provides you with the information you need to learn, grow, and succeed.
Speak with Good Purpose: Speak honestly and kindly; think before you speak. Make sure your intention is positive and your words are sincere.
This Is It: Make the most of every moment; focus your attention on the present moment. Keep a positive attitude.
Commitment: Make your dreams happen; take positive action. Follow your vision without wavering.
Ownership: Take responsibility for your actions; be responsible for your thoughts, feelings, words, and actions. “Own” the choices you make and the results that follow.
Flexibility: Be willing to do things differently; recognize what is not working and be willing to change what you are doing to achieve your goal.
Balance: Live your best life; be mindful of others while focusing on what’s meaningful and important in your life. Inner happiness and fulfillment come when your mind, body, and emotions are nurtured by the choices you make.
