What benefits can I expect from the reading and writing program?

In the short term, we expect our students to improve in their communication skills, both as writers and speakers. We encourage students to listen carefully and evaluate the information they hear, in order to better understand what is said as well as what is implied. In the long term, we teach our students to take responsibility for their own minds; to learn to trust their own informed judgment based on critical standards of thought and values that affirm life and truth.
