Diversity Mission Statement
ALL CODMAN ACADEMY TEAM MEMBERS BELIEVE IN: Rigor and High Quality: As a small, college preparatory school, we have high expectations for our students and for our staff. We believe in the American Youth Foundation’s mantra, “My own self, At my very best, All the time.” As an EL Education school our school design is informed by EL philosophy; students engage in experiential learning across disciplines. Exemplifying this approach, Humanities Department Chair & Instructional Coach, Sydney Chaffee, was named 2017 National Teacher of the Year. Social Justice and Serving our Community: We value learning through meaningful experiences that affect our daily lives. We look to be active members in our community and expect the same from our students. AP Environmental Science and Biology Honors Teacher, Ed Yoo, was named a Green Difference Award Honoree by Project Green Schools for designing our AP Environmental Science course, collaborating with partners to fund sustainability projects at our school, and integrating coral reef studies into his teaching. Integrated Health and Education: CACPS is co-located with our founding partner, the Codman Square Health Center. Together we’ve formed Codman2, an innovative partnership that aims at improving the physical, mental, and socio-emotional health of our community. Our partnership earned the first Mayoral Prize in I Innovation in Health Care. As a school we also earned the Gold-Level Massachusetts School Wellness Award, which noted a high level of student involvement in the wellness program, coordination with the Codman Square Health Center, and an exemplary whole school approach to fostering wellness.
