Programs

Scarlet Foundation’s four major program areas address the broad needs of SCVi. Needs assessment is conducted primarily by the SCVi administration in collaboration with facilitators, learners, parents and guardians. The success of Scarlet Foundation’s programs depend on the generous support of members of the school community. Financial contributions and volunteering are key to planning and implementing initiatives. This ensures that our learners have everything they need.

Human Capital/Funding

We believe that a truly exceptional educational experience only comes when highly-trained and experienced professional educators are involved in guiding students in the learning process. Our program in Human Capital supports SCVi in hiring, developing, and retaining staff to create an environment in which all learners thrive.

In past years Scarlet Foundation has sponsored:

  • Facilitators to attend professional development training in Singapore Math and Differentiated instruction Techniques
  • CPR Training of Facilitators
  • The Leader In Residence support staff member
  • Music Facilitator for the full 2017/18 school year
  • The Annual Recognition Leadership Awards for Facilitators and Staff in collaboration with administration 

Experiential and Project-Based Learning

One of the defining characteristics of SCVi is the focus on learning through hands-on experiences and individual and group projects. Scarlet Foundation is committed to supporting high-impact initiatives to provide and expand these opportunities.

To maintain and enhance experiential and project-based learning opportunities, SCVi relies on support from Scarlet Foundation in the form of volunteers as well as tools and consumable supplies for projects and curricula.

  • A working capital fund to reserve Field Studies venues
  • Creation of the Maker Lab and mobile Maker Carts
