REALearning: Relational, Experiential, Authentic

It's why Moeller is the leader in educating young men.
“New times demand new methods,” Blessed Chaminade, the founder of the Society of Mary, said. At Moeller, we live his words every day. In service to this commitment, we continue to evolve our REALearning model: Relational, Experiential, Authentic. We developed this model based on research and best practices for teaching young men. Through this model, we prepare students for life in the 21st century as a man of faith, a man of knowledge, a man of character - a Man of Moeller.  

Relational

Young men respond and learn when a genuine, trusting relationship is built between the student and his teachers. This is at the core of a Moeller education. The relationships between students and their teachers and counselors are unique and embedded in our culture. From the Writing Center hosted by Mr. Eble and supported by AP English Language students, to the 42 mentor teachers who meet with their group of students every single day, every Moeller teacher is committed to forming the individual Moeller Man. The House System, six service trips, 16 athletic teams and the 24 Moeller alumni who have returned home to teach and work at Moeller also support building our community – enriching the brotherhood that lasts a lifetime.

Experiential

Young men learn best when they are immersed, active, and interested in their classroom material. Decades of research on the best instructional methods for young men guide our design of learning environments for young men to thrive. Our remodeled classrooms provide a flexible learning environment for students to take ownership of their learning and our 90-minute classes provide time for collaboration, inquiry, and exploration. Learning also extends beyond the classroom walls – we offer global immersion experiences and service-learning projects for students to apply their learning in and out of the classroom. Our students discover their passions and accomplish their goals throughout their four years at Moeller.

Authentic

Young men thrive in an environment that is connected to their interests and career aspirations. At Moeller, a young man’s education is customized and tailored to him. Because we offer over 50 electives and over 30 Advanced Placement and College Credit Plus classes, students can personalize their education to foster their intellectual curiosity. Students may also enroll in a mixture of differently leveled classes depending on their particular strengths in subject areas. Men of Moeller from the class of 2019 earned 243 credit hours through the College Credit Plus program in Engineering, Business and Information Technology based on college and career aspirations.
