I’ve been at Compass since its founding. As Director, my ideas and words are throughout this website and various documents. You can read some more of my perspective on the power of a Compass education in some of my recent graduation speeches linked below. In short, I believe Compass consistently develops graduates with capabilities that few high school seniors in America can match. Sometimes our program may look “non-traditional,” but every element in the Compass program is purposeful and contributes to student growth. As hard as it is to capture the magic of Compass in words, there is one medium–Rick’s Blog–I like to use. Maybe too much, according to more than a few of our students? I hope you appreciate my thoughts in that space. You’re also welcome to stop in and chat sometime!
