Valor Collegiate Academy – Nashville, Tennessee, USA
Center for Systems Awareness SITE
Valor Collegiate Academies are a public charter school network in Nashville, Tennessee that is widely recognized as an emerging leader in integrating social-emotional learning into school model design.
Valor’s approach, called Compass, is grounded in a developmental model and encourages everyone in the community – students, teachers, and leaders – to develop their own Inner Compass via reflective self-directed Badge Work and weekly community Circles.
Valor opened their high school in 2018 and is currently working to integrate the Compassionate Systems Framework into their graduate profile and school model so that all students graduate with contemplative and systems-thinking skills. Valor is excited to have key faculty trained in the Compassionate Systems model and to work with the Compassionate Systems team to customize in-house trainings and integrate them into their ongoing teacher and leader development series.
