Educational neuroscience shows how the brain evolves and changes throughout a student’s academic journey. Research on the plasticity of the brain and learning emphasize how students can strengthen their learning strengths while targeting their learning weaknesses.

St. Andrew’s is using that science not only to help our students but also to share our best practices with the external learning community such as Teach For America teachers. An association with faculty from The Johns Hopkins University School of Education's Neuro-Education Initiative and Research Schools International Network led by Harvard Graduate School of Education faculty has brought two of the nation’s leading universities together with a school that is equally committed to transforming instructional practice using the best available cognitive research.
