SCVi offers project-based TK-12 curriculum and learner-led assessment with global and culturally diverse influences.
Our facilitators (teachers) facilitate individualized, project-based learning in the sciences, technology, engineering, the arts, and math. Within our positive learning environment, our learners think for themselves and develop emotional intelligence, life skills, and community engagement. We designed our program around the expectation that learners will become entrepreneurs, leaders, and game changers. Our primary goal is for them to lead successful and fulfilled lives while contributing to the world around them.
SCVi is WASC accredited and IB certified.
At SCVi’s Lower School, we focus on the whole child through creative, consistent application of project-based and social-emotional learning principles. Project-based learning requires learners to work well in teams and solve problems. SCVi’s engaging projects address real-world issues, requiring learners to practice critical thought, sustained inquiry, and deductive reasoning.
Projects culminate in regular Presentations of Learning (POLs) to peers, facilitators, community members, and families. Our curriculum also features a strong social-emotional learning component that cultivates confidence, leadership, and self-reflection.
Our campus and open classroom environments create a sense of community that allows creativity to thrive. Our goal is to provide an environment in which our learners can create, explore, problem-solve, feel accomplishment, support others, and become confident leaders.
We believe unscripted, open-ended play is essential for cognitive and social-emotional growth. Extensive research demonstrates the importance of play for well-being and development.
