Creating Pathways to Deeper Learning

In 2016, the Harbor introduced its unique educational model, Harbor S.A.I.L. (Student Achievement through Inquiry-based Learning).

This sequence of project based, student-centered learning helps students of all abilities become intrinsically motivated and empowered to exceed Common Core standards and pursue their full cognitive potential.

Through Harbor S.A.I.L., students are receiving not only a quality education, but also a pathway for deeper learning and growth.

Measured through the Harbor’s own rubrics, students made substantial gains in reflective, critical, and creative thinking (Intellectual Character) communication skills, and assets of Positive Youth Development (caring and connection).
