STUDENT LEARNER OUTCOMES

Dedicated to School-Wide Learning Results

Rationale Student Learner Outcomes

The purpose of the school is further defined by the school’s school-wide learning results that form the basis of the educational program of every student. At American Renaissance Academy, these learning results are known as “Student Learner Outcomes” (SLOs). The attainment of these SLOs drives the instructional program and support operations of the school.

The SLOs can be further defined as: 
  1. What should students know and be able to do upon exit from the school? 
  2. What does it mean to be an educated person? 
  3. What is the most effective preparation of students for the future?
ARA’s original Student Learner Outcomes (SLOs) were developed in 2012 and have been approved by the Board of Governors on March 2012. Six outcomes were deemed important for the students of ARA: Quality Producer, Critical Thinker, Effective Communicator, Principled Citizen, Technology Literate Learner, and Balanced Life-Long Learner.
