Monarch School provides a safe and supportive peer culture that nurtures personal growth and learning. When a student enrolls, he or she becomes part of a community that bolsters confidence and guides each student as he or she adjusts to school life. “Big Brothers” and “Big Sisters” facilitate a student’s entrance into the Monarch family. These friends mentor new students and ease the transition into the school. They assist with dorm relations, explain and model the school agreements, and simply spend time with their new friends. As students progress through the school, they have the opportunity to become a “Big Brother” or “Big Sister” and continue our long tradition of giving.
We encourage students to discover the value of positive choices and personal accountability through each component of our curriculum: college preparatory academics, fine arts, personal development, vocational learning and outdoor education.
At Monarch School we know how to have fun. We provide numerous safe and healthy opportunities for students to exercise, explore, and to make healthier choices. All of our activities seek to empower students and to teach them how to appropriately manage their free time. Weekends are packed with activities on campus and typically include structured recreation. We also offer off-campus excursions, outdoor adventures, and team-building experiences.
Students implement interpersonal communication skills and work as a team. They become effective writers, speakers, listeners, and non-verbal communicators who thrive in collegiate settings.
Students filter information to assess various situations. They use available resources and information to form solid options and create logical solutions.
Monarch School requires that students model kindness and compassion while adopting leadership positions. We present ample options for students to lead their peers: They are responsible for managing vocational classes and clean-up after each meal, for holding one another accountable in dorms as a dorm manager, and for improving our school’s overall harmony.
