Path 5 – Life-Coaching is another important component of The Academy GA. Life-Coaching creates a socially-emotional nurturing environment at all of our schools. Our school is created so students feel socially, emotionally and physically safe. We are so focused on this, that we begin every school day with Path 5 – Life-Coaching.
We focus on the following 5 areas (not all at one time) for 20-30 minutes at the beginning of each school day:
- Current Events
- Self-Awareness and Self-Improvement
- Serving Others
During this time, we divide our entire student body into small groups to talk about LIFE. Nothing interrupts this time. That’s how significant we deem this time for the health and well-being of our school and children.
It is our goal for each student to create a meaningful relationship with an adult during Life-Coaching. We trust that a student’s Life-Coach will able to help them through school and life struggles when they arise. Additionally, special bonds are created between students during this time.
Gender specific and smaller-sized groups are created as students get older. We assign an adult of the same gender as students when possible. If a student shares information during Life-Coaching that may jeopardize their emotional or physical safety or that of another student, it is immediately shared with parents.
