The Learning Model

Integrating curriculum breaks down barriers between subject areas to make learning more meaningful for students. Integrated studies combine the curriculum from various subjects allowing students to explore and connect ideas across the disciplines.

The Herberger Academy’s unique thematic curricular approach and engaging realistic learning episodes draw on the innate learning abilities and varied interests of highly gifted students. In addition, problem-solving, real-world applications and social consciousness are added to the learning experience, making it more comprehensive while giving students ownership over their learning process.
