The demands and challenges of the 21st century require innovations on the part of teachers, administrators, schools, and communities in order to fully prepare students for college, career, and beyond.

The ASCD Whole Child approach redefines a successful learner, not as one “whose achievement is measured solely by academic tests”, but rather as one “who is knowledgeable, emotionally and physically healthy, civically inspired, engaged in the arts, prepared for work and economic self-sufficiency, and ready for the world beyond formal schooling” (The Learning Compact Redefined, 2007, p.4).

Educators who take on the whole child approach, which aims to ensure that each student is healthy, safe, supported, and challenged, set the standard for comprehensive, sustainable school improvement and provide students with the opportunity for long-term success.
