Students at Dalton cultivate a combination of academic and life skills that help them prepare for life at university and beyond.
Develop smart study and life skills. These include strategies for areas like identifying personal strengths and weaknesses, goal setting, healthy living choices (time management, sleep, etc.), and overcoming obstacles.
Prepare for university abroad. This targets questions related to the college selection and application process. What am I passionate about? What types of careers might I be interested in pursuing? How much does college cost? How do I read a college website? How do I balance demands of study and test prep? To reduce the work of the college application in Senior 3, this area also encourages students to start early to catalog their academic achievements, service learning, individual experiential learning, and other activities.
Navigate the Dalton curriculum. By this, we mean introducing students to aspects that differ from other high school programs, including those at Peking University High School. Areas to highlight include the Independent Research Project (IRP), Carp Week, experiential learning, and the Academic Honesty Code (AHC).
A set of eyes and ears within the Dalton community. Every student will have at least one responsible adult who sees him or her on a regular basis to providegeneral guidance, catch issues before they become major problems, and consult on course selection.
参与者Who is Involved
Students: All students in the Xinmin house who follow the Dalton Academy curriculum.
Faculty: Teachers designated as “foreign” faculty should expect to mentor 10-15 students each. Other faculty members are welcome to participate on a voluntary basis (this is also true for teachers with mentorship responsibilities at the Junior Middle School).
Senior 3: All Senior 3 students are automatically assigned to the Dean of Dalton Academy.
Senior 1 and Senior 2: Students and faculty will have maximum possible choice for mutual selection.
