We Live
A Disciplined Life

At Perspectives, our A Disciplined Life® education model teaches the whole child. 

We combine academic rigor, social emotional learning, and experiential opportunities. This establishes a culture of trust, curiosity and achievement.

Our mission is to provide students with a rigorous and relevant education, based on the ethical principles of A Disciplined Life®. Perspectives students are prepared for life in a changing world with the tools to succeed. This holistic model fosters ethical leadership and cultivates agency. 

For over twenty years, our network has served public school students in grades 6 -12 on our city’s Southside.


Academic Rigor

Our college prep curriculum leverages instruction and personalized learning. Students can take advantage of certification programs, career development, and early college credit.


Social Emotional Learning

A Disciplined Life® is our social emotional learning curriculum and set of 26 principles. This is the foundation of Perspectives. Our 26 principles teaches students to have positive self-perception, healthy relationships, and the tools for productivity. 


Experiential Opportunities

We use the city as a classroom. Students at Perspectives gain skills, confidence and insight from field studies, community action initiatives, and career shadowing.
