Hartford College is committed to a model of education that is more than just focused on academic excellence.
We believe that character is a key developmental focus on the journey from childhood to adulthood, and so we encourage the home and school to work closely together.
This is why we employ a personal mentoring program. This program supports our students through their time at school, acting as a sounding board, a developer of critical thinking, and a positive influence in their academic and personal life.
Our mentors are typically teachers at Hartford, and will catch up with their students on a regular basis to reflect on the past, and set goals for the future. These discussions will have a dual focus: first, on academic performance, work ethic, and study attitudes, and second, on character development across all aspects of life.
At the heart of this model are three educators: the parent, the teacher, and the mentor, all working together to help their boy grow into a well-rounded, virtuous man.
"Education is simply the soul of a society as it passes from one generation to another." - G.K.Chesterton
