TEACHER CONFERENCES

At Gravitas, we partner with parents and guardians to guide students on their journey from wonder to wisdom. During this day, parents and guardians can book individual meetings with their student's teachers and advisors to discuss their progress in their courses and to get a preview of the curriculum for the remainder of the term.

ORAL ASSESSMENT/PASSION ACADEMY WEEK

At Gravitas, we believe the true mark of a student's understanding is the ability to teach the concepts to another person. That's why we employ oral assessments at the end of each term. Students will book individual or small group meetings with their teachers during this week and prepare to demonstrate their understanding orally. When they are not studying for their oral assessments, students are encouraged to make progress on their Passion Academy courses and independent projects.
