Focus Areas Developed by Swan Educational Center
Our program will be divided into five focus areas, each one centered in one of the domes:
Healing Arts classes help students learn how to care for themselves and others.
Practitioners (chiropractors, masseurs, acupuncturists, medical doctors, nurses, etc.) will be
functioning within this dome. Participants in this focus area will be given the opportunity to
observe, assist, and practice with actual patients at appropriate intervals, learning the skills,
the legalities, the business awareness and the ethical requirements of all aspects of this service.
Performing Arts give students opportunities for creative ways of using language and math skills.
Actors, directors, playwrights, costume and set designers will pave the way for budding thespians
to participate alongside professionals...gaining experience, confidence, skills and awareness of roles
they (and others) are playing in life, giving them more control over the parts they play in real life.
Symobology reveals math & art as 2 sides of the same coin; problem solving becomes fun & easy.
Board games, interactive computer programs, art projects, real-life problem solving situations
(scientific, mathematical or both) provide challenging opportunities to develop thinking skills.
Predominately hands-on, experiential activities turn abstract thinking into a Seratonin-producing delight.
Survival skills are essential in urban settings as Well as jungle environments. Both are offered.
“What if” scenarios played out in rural and urban areas. Participants are taught the skills of survival
in many different situations that could (and do) actually occur in a person’s lifetime. Options to
dangerous or novel predicaments help participants develop quick and wise response modes.
Adventures are actually planned and enacted with trips taken to many places around the world.
People of all ages will help plan and go on trips to other areas of the World, studying the cultures and
traditions previous to travel, so that understanding and full appreciation of the experience can be had
by the participants As Well As by the people who are being visited. Languages will be taught as needed.
