Aspirations Framework

The Quaglia Institute's Aspirations Framework outlines a research-based way to recognize and develop aspirations, while trusting in the professional judgment of educators and insights of students to decide what concrete actions are best for their school. This combination of the Institute's expertise articulated in the Framework, and a school's expertise in their unique culture, cultivates a learning environment in which all students and adults are inspired to achieve their very best - personally, socially, and academically.

At the heart of the Aspirations Framework is a set of research-based guiding principles and corresponding conditions that direct the development of educational experiences, from the individual classroom to the entire school building. The Framework emphasizes relationships, active and engaging teaching and learning, and a sense of responsibility over one's own aims and goals.
