Producing Leaders & Graduates for the 21st Century.
Updated: Jun 23
Channeling our philosophy of learning into the development of future graduates and future leaders with our Profile of a Graduate program.
American School Phuket is at the forefront of some of the most exciting and impactful work happening in education around the world. Our philosophy is centered on the development of something we call, Profile of a Graduate. This philosophy is based on a collective vision articulating a community’s aspirations for all students and future global citizens. We have observed a growing energy and interest in the Profile of a Graduate.
“Every school’s Profile will be unique, reflecting the shared vision of its community. This is not a “one-size-fits-all” strategy. There are various qualities that are uniquely important to our individual communities”
As more schools explore the development of a Profile of a Graduate, we would like to share 5 core values that we believe embody the development of our future leaders of the 21st century. The first core value will be addressed in this post and we will discuss four more in future installments of Our Series on Leadership. We are working everyday and aspiring to prepare students for the challenges that lie ahead in our ever changing world.
The Profile of a Graduate must be locally developed.
Every school’s Profile will be unique, reflecting the shared vision of its community. This is not a “one-size-fits-all” strategy. There are various qualities that are uniquely important to our individual communities. Some communities have identified local community service as an essential component of their Profile of a Graduate, while others have made global citizenship a focus in preparing graduates for the 21st century. In Phuket, we included the idea of sustainability in our Profile because of our community’s interest in ensuring that our students learn to conduct lives that promote environmental sustainability. Every community must discover the qualities and competencies that are important to them.
Please stay tuned for future posts in Our Series on Leadership.
