SPIRE Academy | Personal Development
Leadership, Communication, Character Building
Everything one does at SPIRE is meant to help discover inner strength and responsibility. Why do SPIRE alumni often say that their years at SPIRE were the most formative of their lives? It could be the time, the place, or the friendships they made. For many, the answer is found in the wholeness of the experience. The knowledge, the goodness, the positivity.
SPIRE exists to develop adolescents as engaged citizens within an ever changing, complex global society. As such, excelling in school and sport alone is not enough. SPIRE must also shape and impact the positive personal development of each of its students. SPIRE’S emphasis on communication, leadership and character building provides its student base with many opportunities for both individual and team development.
While particular activities and assignments in these fields change throughout the course of the year, every activity is designed to be a challenging and transformative learning opportunity. By delving into topics such as integrity, honesty, ethics, gratitude, conflict resolution, personal accountability, communication techniques, and more…SPIRE students will be better poised to navigate their academic/athletic journeys with greater confidence, conviction and commitment.
Altogether, as a result of their cumulative SPIRE experience, SPIRE students will depart the academy well equipped to navigate life’s challenges, trials and tribulations. Part of this life preparation will come from SPIRE helping its students fulfill the social responsibilities required of them by the school. SPIRE students will offer support to communities both locally and globally, will learn from those experiences, and will carry that knowledge forward.Download The Admissions Guide
