Life at Codman

At Codman Academy, we support each other’s learning, leadership and service by building a community where everyone can take risks to learn and grow in new ways. At Codman, school culture is developed and sustained through practices that bring the community together, promote shared understandings, and encourage all community members to become crew, not passengers. We recognize learning sometimes can be confusing and scary and that is one reason why it is so important to feel supported and safe. Expeditionary Learning calls learning a “journey into the unknown.” At Codman, we are taking that journey together. As members of the community we are all expected to be involved in the whole program, not just parts of it. We build our community by our consistent attention to small, daily actions, choices and rituals. Codman is a place where it is okay to be really good at one thing and a complete novice at something else. It is a safe place to ask and answer questions, to ask for and give help. We hope everyone does all that in a typical day.
