The American Heritage Dictionary defines an endeavor as ”a conscientious or concerted effort toward an end; an earnest attempt.” At
Self-confidence is an essential trait that the Endeavor ROAR program will promote in students. One method of building self-confidence is to familiarize students with public speaking. In the daily morning meeting, students will have opportunities to express themselves as individuals and to express their opinions in front of their peers. Additionally, each grade level will have a public speaking exit requirement. These requirements will build off each other from year to year. After completing the public speaking portion of Endeavor’s education program, students will have the ability to express opinions clearly, interview with colleges, and apply for jobs with confidence. Students will leave with the ability to apply their skills to the real world.
At Endeavor we will seek to provide the highest educational program possible, but we do not think that is enough. We want to encourage the development of good citizens as well as good students. Our “community” approach will provide students with opportunities to get to know the people who make our school possible – from the office staff, to the faculty, the custodian, and the people who deliver our supplies. As students grow, our vision is for them to extend their sense of community to the city, county, state, and even world.
Throughout history, the word “endeavor” has been chosen to name vessels of exploration. Courageous visionaries, setting forth on trips of research, adventure, and national pride chose this word to name their vessels and identify their character. Whether exploring the vast uncharted oceans of Earth or the universe around us, “Endeavor” has stood the test of time. We know the educational program at Endeavor Charter School will live up to the spirit of its predecessors.
