Cushing Academy exists for students and develops curious, creative, and confident learners and leaders.
A Cushing education begins and ends with inquiry. We challenge and support each student through intentional collaboration, feedback, and reflection. Through authentic and complex questions developed by both students and teachers, students gain a sense of purpose in and control over their own learning. They learn to leverage their strengths and grow through challenges; through exploration and imagination, they discover and create new approaches to unsolved problems. By solving problems, answering questions, and understanding paradox, they synthesize information and apply it in new ways. Finally, Cushing students are self-motivated, launching from one understanding into the next inquiry with creativity and discovering new approaches to solve problems with confidence as they embrace and grow through challenges.
At Cushing, we don’t measure success simply by where students end up. We’re just as interested in the journey that gets them there.
