Belonging - Mastery - Independence - Generosity
The vision of the District 211 Academy North is designed using the principles of the Circle of Courage philosophy, striving to provide students with the key elements for success. This resiliency model provides students the opportunity to adjust to change and recover from adversity or challenge, fostering an environment that promotes the following:
- Belonging: Through a caring and supportive community in which trust, acceptance, and respect is present. (I am important to somebody).
- Mastery: Developing achievement by offering access to opportunities, setting high expectations, and being receptive to new ideas. (I am able to solve problems).
- Independence: Encouraging decision-making, problem-solving, and personal responsibility. (I am in charge of my life.)
- Generosity: Experiencing the power of giving by making positive contributions to others. (My life has value.)
These elements create opportunities for students to realize their strengths, enhance their development, and guide them toward positive choices and experiences.
