• Student agency is the foundation of Henry County's personalized learning commitment.  Student agency is a person’s ability and willingness to formulate a plan and take initiative to achieve it. In order to become lifelong learners, students  should be self-aware and able to act and advocate for themselves. We believe that schools should foster student ownership of learning, not accept passive participation in the learning experience.  Students with high agency are aware of their strengths, needs, wants, and goals, are clear on learning expectations and how to meet them and are resourceful learners who seek information and build skills they need to be successful in college, career, and life.

    • Authentic Learning Experiences
    • 21st Century Skills (Communication, Collaboration, Creativity, and Critical Thinking)
