The Curriculum for Understanding: why Liggett is different
We learn through experience. At the heart of that belief is Liggett’s Curriculum for Understanding, which allows students to drive the process of their own academic growth.

From prekindergarten through 12th grade, students become active participants in their learning experience. They discover their passions. They uncover questions. They propose answers. And, in doing so, they turn information into understanding.

The Curriculum for Understanding takes students on a journey from curiosity and inquiry to academic mastery. They graduate with the skills and experiences needed to be critical, creative thinkers who can work collaboratively with others and adapt to any and all ideas and opportunities.
Seniors showcase Academic Research Projects
On Tuesday, May 27, University Liggett School seniors who participated in the Academic Research Program program displayed their work in the lobby of the school and invited the campus community, including teachers, students, parents and friends to explore more about what each learned. The students used visual aids, demonstrations as well as their knowledge on each topic to help illustrate points to those who stopped at each exhibit for more information. The Academic Research Project is part of University Liggett School's Curriculum for Understanding.

The students have been working on the research for much of their time in the Upper School. With the help of their teachers, they formulated a topic, researched it extensively, worked with mentors and professionals in the field and wrote papers about their findings. Not only does the program give them a solid foundation in writing and research, it also gives them the chance to interact with those in the field they might want to pursue and also learn more about their selected topic.
