Where Warriors are Trained
In our commitment to students’ success, we provide access to life coaches and a challenging NCAA approved curriculum centered on Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math (STEAM), college preparedness, financial literacy and proficiency, entrepreneurship, and environmental stewardship.
Students find a safe place to voice their ideas while being exposed to local and global perspectives. Individuals discover their greatest areas of interest within the STEAM curriculum. Together we will map out an individualized plan that taps into multiple intelligences while drawing out the greatness within each student. As students come together with local, national, and international leaders to pioneer new pathways, they find the power to create a healthier future.
Mt. Zion’s rigorous, college-preparatory curriculum is designed to develop five key skills in each student:
- Critical Thinking and Reasoning: thinking deeply & thinking differently
- Information Literacy: investigating information to determine the accuracy
- Collaboration: working together & learning together
- Self-Direction: taking control of your destiny
- Invention: creating solutions & solving problems
Courses of Study
STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art & Math)
Our program provides students with the fundamentals of scientific knowledge and a forum for conducting inquiries. Students examine historical and current topics while exploring the expansive field of science. They will learn and research exciting topics such as nuclear power, genetic engineering, robotics, space science, and artificial intelligence.
Technology & Engineering
The Technology & Engineering program prepares students for the ever-increasing presence of technology in the world. In the ever-changing space of technology and engineering, students will discover the power of creativity and ingenuity to explore many of the world’s problems.
The arts are a great way to express oneself. As students develop their unique art style and voice, they build upon foundational skills, experiment, and discover a vehicle for personal expression. Students will explore various forms of art and exposure to technical skills in theatre, dance, music, or visual arts.
Students will see mathematics come alive as they interact with it in their daily lives. They will become dynamic, creative problem solvers who confidently tackle the challenges before them.
Students come to us with varying levels of financial proficiency. In our financial literacy program, we build a foundation by teaching the basics of budgeting, banking, and savings. From there, we uplevel to teach students about financial terms and different types of investments. They learn how to manage risk, develop financial plans, and create wealth.
We empower students to develop a healthy relationship with money from a young age. Students are better prepared to navigate the realities of life and personal money management as they enter adulthood. In applying the same principles of discipline taught throughout Mt Zion’s curriculum, students will learn how to take charge of their finances, achieve their financial goals, and fulfill their dreams.
