Discovery Framework

Athenian’s learning outcomes fit within Round Square’s Discovery Framework. During Focus Day activities, students develop important life skills such as self-awareness, inventiveness, tenacity, group work, and strong communication skills.
We design Focus Days with Kurt Hahn’s vision in mind, “I see it as the foremost task of education to ensure the survival of these qualities: an enterprising curiosity, an undefeatable spirit, tenacity in pursuit, readiness for sensible self-denial, and above all, compassion.” We believe that the breadth and depth offered through Focus Day experiences creatively and effectively empower our students with these essential capacities.
