  • Success Classes Explained

    Mount Saint Charles believes in the importance of providing exploratory opportunities for students as they build essential foundational skills of success.  The only required success course in middle school is Digital Literacy (Beginning with the Class of 2025).

    Success classes offer students the chance to engage in a variety of experiences that help them to build knowledge, confidence and core skills necessary to be a learner in today’s world.  Students will select up to 2 classes per semester, allowing for many different experiences over the course of their middle school years. Courses with an asterisk (*) can be taken more than once.  Success classes are flexible, allowing time for students to meet with core teachers as needed while encouraging inquiry, collaboration and responsibility and allowing students to learn in a fun and authentic way.

    Success teachers will provide feedback on students ability to persevere, work collaboratively, create quality products and reflect on their abilities and will not be graded in the traditional sense.  Students will not be given homework or expected to do work outside of success classes aside from rehearsals connected to courses with an * and the expectation to participate in the end of semester “Success Showcase”, a culminating experience where students share their learning with others.  Courses will be run based on student interest within a given semester.
