Pro Vita Non Pro Schola Discimus
"Learning—not just for school but for life."
The Cygnet School’s role is to support each child so they may confidently expand their innate talents, develop the skills needed for success in secondary school, and cultivate personal values that will allow him or her to act with thoughtfulness and benevolence.
The Cygnet School envisions a learning environment which engages every student and empowers them to make decisions about their own learning, both now and as they grow. We value and support all aspects of child development, including social and emotional growth and artistic and creative talents, as well as academic knowledge and skills. This approach inspires our students to thoughtfully connect with and positively impact local and global communities throughout their lives.
Thoughtful questioning, exploring, commitment to learning about oneself and others, and embracing new experiences, not just for school but for life.
Honesty and accountability to oneself and others, trustworthiness, exhibiting discipline and personal responsibility in all pursuits and relationships.
Respecting oneself and others, one's place and surroundings, considering intent and impact of one’s actions, and acting in ways that demonstrate empathy and understanding.
