“Tell me, and I forget
Teach me, and I remember
Involve me, and I learn.”
An integral part of the education offered at CADMUS® NAC is the Student Life Organization (SLO), a student-led mini-society that empowers students to get involved in the day-to-day experience at their school and offers countless academic, social, and emotional benefits for everyone involved.
Through the organization’s nine departments, students have the power to make a real difference in their school and their community. SLO prefects have the ability to organize academic and social events, host games and challenges, plan athletic activities, explore new skills, start clubs, raise awareness on important subjects, stand up for important causes, and much more.
By taking on this active role, students learn to take responsibility for their emotional, social, and moral growth as both individuals and members of a larger community. The real-life experiences students are exposed to help foster their personal development as well as provide them with a platform to acquire and refine skills, attitudes, and attributes that give them a huge advantage in university and beyond.Some of these essential life skills include:
- Problem Solving
- Critical Thinking
- Grit & Resilience
- Empathy & Tolerance
Having demonstrated that they have a broad base of abilities and experiences and that they can be effective team players, top universities from around the world will be eager to attract and accept students. It is these same skills, attitudes, and attributes learned and developed through the SLO that will make graduates from our school successful in university and beyond.
