PEAKS is an acronym for Personalized Education for the Acquisition of Knowledge and Skills®, a cornerstone of the Cardigan academic program. PEAKS helps each student become a better, more efficient learner and self-advocate.

Through guided self-development, we teach the boys to be better learners while focusing on a holistic perspective that includes mind, brain, wellness, and education. The PEAKS Department is responsible for a progression of courses taken by students each year. The courses are geared to helping each student understand the interrelated factors that impact learning and wellness, with a particular focus on applying this information to the discovery of how he2020欧洲杯足球直播比分 learns best. In these unique PEAKS classes, students identify their individual strengths and challenges, and they learn to advocate for themselves.

PEAKS is taken by every student in all grades. Students attend their PEAKS core class four days per week and, with the help of their PEAKS coach, explore ways to employ effective strategies for leading more productive lives—in their academics and beyond. The curriculum focuses on the skills students need in order to be successful at Cardigan, including study skills, technology, and wellness. In addition to teaching classes, PEAKS coaches act as secondary advisors and mentors. Whether it’s working one-on-one on a math problem or providing an opportunity for students to express their feelings, the role of the PEAKS coach outside of the classroom manifests itself in numerous ways. In addition, PEAKS coaches observe their students in other classes and in other areas of school life, and they actively communicate with the other adults on campus regarding students’ accomplishments and concerns. PEAKS coaches also support the Cardigan community in a professional development capacity, and the department serves as a sounding board for ideas.
