Navigating innovation needs a guide. Experience the culmination of a decade of transformation at the Mount Vernon School.
About this Event

As a school of inquiry, innovation and impact, The Mount Vernon School continues to reimagine what school is and does. Closing the gap between real life and school life, we have been on a transformational journey for a decade and can empathize with the opportunities and challenges you are navigating.

Comprised of two distinct experiences, join Mount Vernon Ventures for a full day of transformation!

Part I: School Reimagined - On this expedition, you will join members of the Mount Vernon team for a half-day of deeper learning and connect with expert practitioners through one of three experiences:

How Might We Make School Life More Reflective of Real Life?: Experience how Mount Vernon looks at the whole child (PK-12), looking through the lens of real-world project work. Topics will include Design Thinking, Inquiry Based Learning; Inter/Multi/Transdisciplinary Learning, Innovative and Flexible Spaces, Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion.

Competency Based Education: Focus on Personalization We'll introduce the foundations of Competency-based learning and then dive into the methods, tools and systems for discerning, mapping, and informing a rigorous learning journey. Our main focus will be on personalizing learning through varied pacing and different pathways based on learners’ curiosities, passions, and proficiency levels including planning for and implementing differentiated instruction, using assessment data to guide learning, incorporating learner self-assessment, and documenting the learning journey.

Maker Design & Engineering: Want to take a deep dive specifically into Maker, Design and Engineering? Spend the morning with our MDE Experts-in-Residence and experience what it means to be a maker at Mount Vernon.

Each participant will travel with an MV expert on a learning walk, receive instruction and guidance about respective School models, and debrief with faculty members during lunch.

Part II: MVV Design Sprint - An experiential workshop on what design thinking can look like in a classroom setting. Using Mount Vernon's design thinking methodology, Compass, participants will use a design thinking framework which can be adapted for any academic subject, and see what the 4 D's (Discovery, Define, Design and Deploy) looks like as classroom activities with students.
