The Staten Island School of Civic Leadership recognizes that individuals in a society must be educated for citizenship. We are deeply committed to meeting this challenge as we develop leaders who are invested in the public good and success of the community. We are focused on fostering a culture of excellence in the acquisition of essential skills in all educational disciplines through a highly structured, highly motivational school-wide core curriculum that orchestrates diversity in learning styles and the needs, interests, and abilities of individual learners. We are founded on the belief that civic leadership is education in action for the good of all people within a global society. As such, our students will develop the skills they need to make informed decisions as independent critical thinkers who understand their democratic rights as private individuals and their civic responsibilities as public participants in a network of social and political communities. Ultimately, within a seamless educational experience, and with family partnerships deeply embedded in our foundation, our students will become disciplined, courageous leaders who are inspired to make a difference in America’s civic purpose.
