Continuing to set the conditions for learners to excel, Mount Vernon looks to foundational partnerships to accelerate and amplify its efforts. Through the generous support of the Christian Education Charitable Trust (CECT), the School has been awarded a $100,000 grant.
Created by the Maclellan Foundation, CECT supports Christian education by providing faith-based educational and church-based grants.
β€œWe are so grateful for this partnership in school innovation,” says MVIFI Executive Director Bo Adams. “With the generosity of the Christian Education Charitable Trust, we will be able to accelerate and deepen our work in scheduling, assessment and program design. We have plans to generate a new Upper School schedule, which will set the conditions for deep inquiry and project work in real-world contexts. Additionally, we will be able to support even stronger professional learning for faculty striving to enhance their project-based curricula.”
This year, the School launched MVx, a strategic response to the shifts in the skillsets needed for future success, and a reflection of Mount Vernon’s core priorities: to be learner-centered; engage and create diverse networks; and progress together through research, design, and iteration.
We are grateful that the Maclellan Foundation recognizes Mount Vernon’s vision, mission, and impact.
