Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"It is the philosophy of Thomas Hart Academy that each child is a unique and valuable individual who has the potential to be a contributing member of society with the capacity to develop the talents and skills to
function successfully in life. At Thomas Hart Academy, our work is driven by our school philosophy. Each and every decision that
affects our teaching programs is made with the philosophy in mind to be certain that we are what we say we are and that we do what we say we do. We believe that each child can realize his or her own potential
in four areas:
• Intellectual Growth - We believe that our students can develop the creative and intellectual skills to
master the material necessary for them to be successful at the high school level and throughout life.
• Physical Development - We believe that our students can learn to be healthy individuals. They can
develop coordination and physical skills, and can learn to have the confidence necessary to enable
them to participate in and enjoy physical activities now and in the future.
• Social Interaction - We believe that our students can learn to interact with others in a positive and
rewarding way, with well-developed social skills for building relationships with peers and adults of
diverse ethnic/cultural and racial backgrounds.
• Emotional Health - We believe that our students can develop into emotionally healthy individuals
who believe success is possible and who know themselves to be likeable and capable of challenge.
Thomas Hart Academy is a family-oriented school that encourages communication with parents. We
value parents’ insight and the goals they have for their children.
We believe it is necessary to provide a school environment, which is nurturing and success-oriented, an
environment that has established standards allowing for variability in developmental level through
flexibility, latitude and accommodation within the program."
