Calliope’s approach to education is multifaceted. While teaching is our primary focus, we recognize that it is only one piece in an entire constellation of variables that determine success in learning. Therefore, we mobilize student’s academic resources and act as a bridge between our students and administrators, educators and parents. We work closely with academic deans, teachers, advisors, coaches, learning specialists and parents to address all aspects of our students’ educational needs.
Calliope mentors work with many students who have been diagnosed with learning differences such as ADD, dyslexia and disnomia. We view these as learning challenges and cognitive differences and have found that there is a code to each student’s learning process that, once discovered, permits easy access to all intellectual and creative endeavors.
