Stage 9 - Curriculum

Establishing Your Schools Educational Program

Are your School Founders up for the challenge? The mechanics of starting a school can be challenging. In today’s complicated environment, the need to work smarter and be ready for the day-one of school opening is critical. With proper planning, founders can be prepared to start the school of their dreams, and manage costs and project development effectively, establishing a school for generations to come. Provided herein are our time-tested stages for starting a school.

In Stage 9 you need to formalize the educational philosophy and program for your school, including the type of curriculum you will use. This focus will determine the type of unique learning experience you will offer your students, the type of staff and resources you will need to implement the program, as well as the type of student you will need to recruit to match and thrive in your program. You will need to determine the scope and sequence of your curriculum, grade-by-grade and program-by-program. This is turn will affect your costs of your programming and budget and the tuition you charge to  support the program and staffing. You will also need to determine your school's extra-curricular program as well as your policies on assessment, marking, reporting, guidance, LD, and gifter learing. And of course, you will need to ensure that you meet your accreditation requirements and governmental regulatory standards for your educational program.
