Engaged Students

Research says that engaged students learn best, and the ICG believes that the most engaging curriculum is built around the values and aspirations of schools, who best know how to meet the needs and interests of their own students. The ICG believes that schools are first and foremost for students.

Motivated Teachers

Responsive, student-centered school cultures allow teachers to be coaches and entrepreneurs rather than custodians and to design courses and assessments that make the best use of resources in the school community and the wider world. Teaching in our time is above all a learning profession.

Purposeful Schools

Twenty-first century education is a dynamic process. As globalization and information technology transform the world, schools must be equipped with the ideas and the expertise to prepare students to meet the challenges they will face—challenges not just of skills and knowledge but of character and purpose.

Connected Educators

In our time no educator should be working alone, and the ICG believes that teachers who connect through shared professional conversations and learning experiences will be leaders in the evolution not only of their own areas of practice but of the culture of learning in all schools, for all students.

The ICG Paradigm: Connect * Learn * Evolve

The Independent Curriculum Group is the Professional Learning Community for academic leaders and schools working to promote the transformation of teaching and learning. Collaborating through our Partner Program and our events, resources, and services, individuals and institutions build capacity in the development of effective curriculum based on their unique missions and the special resources, needs, talents, and passions of their own communities of educators and learners.
