Audacious Foundation supports Whole Child Learning
A child’s growing brain requires a balance of academic education and experiential learning to reach its peak potential. Whole Child Learning Environments provide a complete learning experience inclusive of mind, body, and spirit.
A Whole Child School Connects Physical, Social-Emotional, & Academic Learning
Academic achievement, social-emotional competence, and physical and mental health are fundamentally interrelated.
Hands-On, Experiential Activities Welcome & Benefit All Learning Styles
Kinesthetic, verbal, aural, and visual learners all benefit from a greater variety of environments and activities.
Life Skills Programs Prepare Kids to Thrive as Adults
Essential life skills such as oral health and financial literacy prepare students for the non-standardized test called “real life”.
A Balanced Approach Improves Classroom Performance
Exercise, healthy food, and outdoor activity improve concentration, retention, behavior, and cognitive function.
School Gardens, Edible Forests, Camp Experiences, and Nature-Based Education take kids out of the classroom and into the world.
Learning skills like swimming or bicycling helps kids make their health a lifetime habit.
Essential Life Skills
Initiatives devoted to arts exposure, financial literacy, reading skills, and etiquette develop skills students will use throughout life.
