Whole Child Model

  • At Fernan we believe in serving the Whole Child

    Whole Child Core Beliefs

    We create a Culture of Safety:  Each student learns in an environment that is physically and emotionally safe for students and adults. 

    We engage in Meaningful Relationships: Each student has a champion, a supportive and caring adult, and is connected to the school and broader community.

    We value and nurture Physical Health: Each student enters school healthy and fed and learns about and practices a healthy lifestyle.

    We teach Social, Emotional, and Cognitive Characteristics and Skills: Each student has access to quality, personalized learning and is supported by qualified, caring adults. 

    We grow the Whole Child: Each student is challenged academically and prepared for success in college or further study and for employment and participation in a global environment.
