K-12 Tuition Free Public School

Curriculum

SCVi's mission, "Inspiring lifelong learners with the skills to thrive in the 21st century," was inspired by this TIME cover story:
There's a dark little joke exchanged by educators with a dissident streak: Rip Van Winkle awakens in the 21st century after a hundred-year snooze and is, of course, utterly bewildered by what he sees. Men and women dash about, talking to small metal devices pinned to their ears. Young people sit at home on sofas, moving miniature athletes around on electronic screens. Older folk defy death and disability with metronomes in their chests and with hips made of metal and plastic. Airports, hospitals, shopping malls--every place Rip goes just baffles him. But when he finally walks into a schoolroom, the old man knows exactly where he is. "This is a school," he declares.  "We used to have these back in 1906. Only now the blackboards are green."

"Assessment, wh
en used correctly in a formative way, can empower students and teachers to not only improve but, better yet, believe in themselves. . . . And . . . any barrier, no matter how imposing, begins to crumble."
