A Word From Our
Head of School

In a world in which personalization should intersect with collaboration, Cushman Virtual provides learners with a platform to learn anytime and anywhere… while building relationships that will last a lifetime. Understanding each learner’s needs is the entry point of which all students’ engagement lies. Whether students are learning in a virtual classroom or attending a social mixer, or whether they are participating in a virtual, experiential field trip, Cushman’s Master teachers will facilitate students’ learning and experiences so that they are well-informed, confident speakers with varied interests and passions. As Cushman students engage with and learn from others of varying cultures and perspectives, and as they collaborate to solve real issues of our time, they will gain experience within the global landscape leading them to become informed, engaged global citizens. Cushman Virtual is the context of which all students develop the knowledge, dispositions and attitudes leading to strength of character and a life well-lived.
