“Being in this school has been a blessing. Being able to learn the way I want to and really need to is a miracle. The past year and a half at LCS have been full of amazing experiences and unexpected opportunities. This charter school has helped me see school in a new way and has encouraged me to find a college that fits my unique learning style.”
  ~ Excerpt from the senior speech delivered at graduation by Ashley Ferrer ’10, currently studying at the New England Culinary Institute in Montpelier, VT

What does it mean to “Make Learning Real?”

Meaningful learning is learning that makes a difference — in one’s mind and in one’s life. This type of learning is what we want our students to achieve.

Meaningful Learning is:

  • Active
  • Constructive
  • Intentional
  • Authentic
  • Cooperative

Students are more likely to be actively engaged in their education when a purpose is clearly defined and the results are tangible and meaningful.

Please follow this link for the North Central Regional Educational Laboratory’s definition of
meaningful learning:

At Ledyard, learning focuses on students’ strengths & interests and provides highly motivating & relevant learning opportunities based on an integrated academic core, supplemented with service learning & internships in the community.

Makes Learning Real

“Tell me and I will forget. Show me and I may remember. Involve me and I will understand.”
 ~ Ancient Chinese Proverb

Each individual learns differently.

Each individual should have the opportunity to receive an education that will maximize his strengths and best prepare him for life.

Each individual deserves to work with adult mentors who will take note of her talents and support & guide her through the decision-making process.
