Chart your course
Our Compass course lets students connect with the world beyond the WRA classroom by cultivating their unique interests and talents and applying them to a real-world setting. Over the course of the academic year, enrolled students develop skills in the areas of project design, collaboration, scheduling and implementation, budgeting, proposal development, making a pitch, leadership and resilience, process reflection, professionalism, marketing, research, interviewing, presentation and so much more.
This is what school will be like in the future. I am passionate about teaching how to learn, and every day I get to work with a group of incredible interested students on different project with different goals.
