Academic Enrichment

Jefferson Township High School

All students are held to the highest standards for academic, social and ethical behavior. They are motivated to learn, self-assured, and confident individuals. Students are prepared to apply their skills and knowledge as productive citizens in an ever-changing world.

Members of the educational community are facilitators of learning who work cooperatively and support students. The educator differentiates instruction while encouraging inquiry-based learning, critical thinking skills, and community based activities. Instruction focuses on practical and technological problem solving applications.

A diverse curriculum provides opportunities which promote student learning. The curriculum emphasizes interdisciplinary connections and a global perspective.

Episcopal School of Jacksonville

We prepare you for the kind of learning you’ll experience in college and beyond.

THE HARKNESS METHOD

The Harkness Method, used in many humanities classrooms, is an established and cherished way of instruction which fosters students’ curiosity, initiative, personal confidence and problem-solving. Students sit around a table and the teacher serves as a moderator for a lively discussion in which everyone participates. Students have equal opportunity to provide input and lead the class, allowing for healthy debate, discussion and meaningful homework.

Episcopal’s endowed fund for Harkness teaching provides ongoing funds to ensure the effective integration of the Harkness method in Episcopal’s curriculum. The fund provides training, evaluation, and support for teachers using the Harkness method and helps to spread and maintain the culture of Harkness teaching.

The Florida Aquarium

The Florida Aquarium actively participates in and promotes stewardship of the natural environment as part of our mission of conservation. Our efforts combine scientific research and animal rescue, rehabilitation and release programs that give needed support to animals in distress or imminent danger, and ecosystems that are faced with both natural and man-made threats. These efforts focus on many areas of conservation which include the propagation of corals in Florida’s Keys, rescuing endangered sea turtles and threatened river otters, assisting with dolphin and manatee rescues, assessing stress levels in sharks, documenting underwater cultural assets (a.k.a. shipwrecks) and raising awareness of sustainable seafood issues.
Our Center for Conservation is a lead institute that utilizes the expertise of our talented and knowledgeable staff and volunteers who address the challenges that face Florida aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems.
