Progressive education is experiential, active learning that honors the developmental ages and stages of physical, social, emotional, and cognitive development. Students at Lowell take an active part in their learning and develop the initiative and self-direction that will prove vital no matter where the future takes them.

Although progressive education enjoys a long and rich history, its principles are more relevant than ever in preparing today’s students to be tomorrow’s leaders and innovators. A progressive approach emphasizes skill-building, multi-disciplinary knowledge, collaborative effort, and deep conceptual understanding—all things that individuals need to make a difference in the world.
