Drawing on its rich heritage of student-centered learning and academic excellence, Meridian’s education program has been redesigned for the 21st century. At Meridian, our students have always had the opportunity to work with exceptional teachers in small classes and a rigorous curriculum. This has been a formula for success for two decades. Building on this strong foundation, Meridian’s new program integrates the best in educational technology and online learning within the school’s own academic program. This approach, called “blended learning,” enhances student performance and facilitates personalized learning to a degree not attainable in a traditional classroom. Teachers are able to spend more time working with students individually and in small groups to address specific needs. Students are able to acquire basic subject information through online modules selected by the teacher. Teachers are then able to orchestrate classroom activities to help students synthesize, apply, and extend foundational knowledge. Learning in this way promotes deeper understanding and greater retention.
