Transitions and Graduation – Life after Arbor
You are an extraordinary group of educators and your graduates are very well prepared for the next step in their lives. Our teachers are constantly telling me, ‘We love the kids from Arbor. Get more of them.’ –Chuck Byrd. Director of Admissions at St. Pius X
One of the most often-asked questions we receive is “How is the transition for Arbor grads to traditional schools?” The answer, quite simply, is “seamless.”
Arbor graduates leave with at least two critically important assets that we believe will sustain them throughout their lifetime: the ability to adapt and a love of learning.
Montessori’s real-world learning environment prepares a child remarkably well for any environment—not only for high school and college, but for the fast-changing demands and unlimited possibilities our 21st century world has waiting for them beyond college.
By the time our graduates are in the work force, it is estimated that they will have to change careers at least two or three times during their lifetimes. Improvements in technology will increase the pace of life significantly.
