Preparing Students for the Challenging Demands of the 21st Century

Preparing Students for the Challenging Demands of the 21st Century

While academic achievement is critical to competence, most students are not prepared to meet the problems and opportunities they will face in their schools, colleges and ultimately the workplace.

What today’s employers really want are career-ready employees who are not only competent in their field but who possess leadership qualities such as:

  • Taking initiative as individuals and within teams.
  • Focusing on key priorities and finding mutually beneficial outcomes.
  • Working in creative and collaborative ways to solve problems
  • Having high integrity and work ethic.

Students need more than a degree. They also need to become leaders who can thrive in today's competitive global marketplace. Simply, they need both competence and character to succeed in the 21st Century. We only get one chance to prepare our students for a future that none of us can possibly predict. What are we going to do with that one chance?
