Mission & Vision

The CTTL’s focus is on developing exceptional teachers who know how the mind learns.


The CTTL is the research and development arm of St. Andrew's Episcopal School. It serves as a conduit between the external research community and classroom teachers who want to apply how much more is known about how the mind learns to their instructional practice. 


Educational neuroscience must be part of a 21st century teacher's lens into their classroom design and work with each student.


The Center focuses on four inter-connected pillars: Research, Professional Development, Neuro-Educational Workshops, and Classroom Integration.



Guiding Questions of the CTTL 

  1. What is learning?

  2. Where does learning happen? 

  3. How do all students best learn?

  4. What research in educational neuroscience can help inform and measure exceptional teaching and learning?
