Coffee With The Headmaster Held At KVA

Mr. Wiggins met with KVA parents in an open forum on Monday evening to discuss the state of our school and ideas for moving it forward. Mr. Wiggins shared his thoughts on teaching and learning in general focusing on curriculum, teaching methods, and literacy. He talked about the components of a learning-centered school and shared how Kerr-Vance was working to build in those components. He shared research findings on what colleges are looking for in students as well as what companies in the US and around the world want to see in employees. He tied this into how Kerr-Vance's educational model is preparing students for the future. Mr. Wiggins also shared his thoughts for innovations in the Lower, Middle, and Upper Schools moving forward. Ideas included hiring a middle school anchor teacher, adding a leadership component, and providing work-study opportunities for high school Seniors. Please email questions to fwiggins@kerrvance.com
