Valentine’s K-12 curriculum discovers and develops students’ gifts and aptitudes for commerce, allowing them to apply what they learn to what they love and make money off of it. Students will learn hands-on real world skills. They’ll be tutored, mentored, apprenticed, and supervised, and work part time jobs. Students will be directly involved in running their schools. Supervised students will do accounting, administration, shopping, cooking, farming, cleaning, waste, maintenance, construction and health clinic tasks.
Relationship class counters cliques, rumors and bullying with truth, sharing and maturity to engender a positive, loving, supportive learning environment on school campuses. Children in school and adults evenings and weekends will discuss personal, social and business relationship problems and issues.
Students, teachers and staff will receive free basic health and dental services at campus clinics (also learning facilities), and get 3 organic meals and exercise each school day keeping them attentive and ready to learn, teach and work, providing a solid physical foundation, instilling healthy habits, and saving on future health care costs. Each high school student will have one month of boot camp to learn respect, discipline and their role in emergency situations. School will be in session year round with extended breaks around holidays.
