The Director’s Welcome
Welcome to Dartford Excelsior Academy, an online school that is re-invigorating the delivery of high-quality home school education to young people around the world.
Set within the framework of the British system, our curriculum pushes the boundaries of education through our commitment to excellence combined with our commitment to internationalism. We aim to nurture young people that both understand the world and wish to shape it.
We are guided by a single principle: building academic resilience through compassionate teaching.
Our unique teaching method, combining robust study plans, specially designed video lectures and live tutorials aims to place our students at the centre of their educational journeys. We want to empower our young people with the skills and intellectual capacity to empower the world around them.
At the heart of our approach to education is our distinctive DE Teaching Method which combines the following:
- a commitment to excellence and a commitment to the active nurturing of excellence in our students;
- the prioritisation of the building of confidence and the nurturing of academic resilience in our students;
- the employment of a ‘first principles’ approach to knowledge acquisition that empowers students to develop a robust understanding of the syllabus;
- the implementation of a collaborative feedback loop through which attained knowledge is organically compounded and retained.
I am delighted that you are considering enrolling your child at the Academy. If you have any questions, please send me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or join me for my weekly Tutor Tutor Sessions every other Saturday at 8am (London) where I discuss the Academy as well as general tips for building academic resilience in young people.
