Cushing Academy has undergone a profound systemic transformation which has been a collective educational quest. This year, Cushing teachers traveled to various schools in the country where innovative educational approaches are taking place. Faculty researched pioneering classroom applications of 21st century learning and took a close look at what we are doing in our classrooms to meet the needs of our digital learners.  


We will preview our soon-to-be published companion pieces: Jim Tracy’s book on developing an entrepreneurial school and faculty findings on the best innovations Cushing has incubated internally along with the most interesting practices we have found in our travels, including:

  • Exciting teaching innovations taking place in America’s secondary classrooms
  • Effective methodology focused on differentiated instruction and evaluation
  • Methods to:

- galvanize faculty to a greater sense of inquiry and discovery

- affirm peers, encourage contributions and assuage fears around change

- forge a new consensus and momentum among faculty
