Our Program

The D'Evelyn Program has been developed to continue the alternative educational environment exemplified by the Dennison Fundamental Alternative School program. It is based on the belief that all students, not just an elite group, should be held to rigorous academic and behavioral standards, and that all students can achieve in a challenging program. We, the Initiating Committee, believe the purpose of education is to convey an essential body of cultural knowledge to the next generation, and that a solid liberal arts education is required in order for all citizens to be effective participants in their communities.

Independent, analytical reasoning, based on objective knowledge, is an essential skill and will be encouraged throughout the program. There will be an emphasis upon year-to-year sequential continuity in the development of basic knowledge and competence, with gradually increasing complexity and requirements. A mastery of the skills and knowledge acquired through the study of the basic academic subjects is the foundation for all subsequent learning, regardless of the student's future pursuits.
