A SCHOOL FOR CHILDREN, INC is the brainchild of Jewel Jones Faison, Ph.D., that is the non-profit outgrowth of Construct & Concepts Int'l, A meta-cognitive coaching and professional development firm. A SCHOOL FOR CHILDREN formerly closed the educational unit (an accredited K-12 non-graded, multi-aged, constructivist school) in August 2012 after Dr. Faison suffered a catastrophic illness.
Dr. Faison survived a brain aneurysm in 2012. Although A School for Children, Inc. (ASC) also survived, it was advised that Dr. Faison step down from the day-to-day stress of operating this fully accredited innovative treasure in SW-GEORGIA. However, the school was young and with no certified successor, Dr. Faison entrusted the Lord with her life savings, her reputation and her dream to build safe learning spaces that actually meet and exceed the learning needs of ALL students. Whether children were creative and academically gifted or those gifted with ADD/ADHA, ODD, Learning Differences and Autism, ALL reached their academic potential at A School for Children! Closing the doors of the school was indeed that grain of corn that fell to the ground.
Nevertheless, a seed planted BLOSSOMS! She now transports NEXT PRACTICES to other schools, school systems and community youth programs. As the non-profit outgrowth of Constructs & Concepts International (CCI) the ASC practices are embedded in Dr. Faison's work. As a consultant she has been able to replicate and build on the concepts used at A SCHOOL FOR CHILDREN and develop innovative learning spaces and teacher leaders for private and public entities. Designing charter schools, charter systems, private schools and community children's programs is Dr. Faison's passion. Her professional development sessions are AUTHENTIC, RELEVANT, IMPARTATIONAL, & IMPACTFUL. From literacy training to governance trainings Dr. Faison and her team can develop impactful training you.
