Learning at SMA Prep 

SMA Prep implements evidenced-based, best practice to understand how young people learn and the importance of developing the skills, character and interdisciplinary knowledge required to become a globalized and effective citizen in our modern world.

What is Learner-Agency?

According to the World Economic Forum, many of our primary and middle school students will face joining a workforce filled with jobs that don't yet exist. As our world is evolving, a demand for a mastery skill set looks much different today than even 5 years ago. Learner agency focuses on the development of student voice, choice, and ownership to become lifelong learners ready to respond and adapt to new challenges and problem-solving as they arise.
