Learner Profile Attribute of the Month

Learner Profile


The Learner Profile unites us all with a common focus: on the whole person, as a lifelong learner. It applies to us all - student, teacher, parent or administrator - for we are all continually learning.

Each month GPA will focus on one attribute from the Learner Profile and highlight students who demonstrate action in their journey as lifelong learners.
