To fulfill our mission of developing internationally-minded citizens with strong characters who want to contribute positively to our world, International School Carinthia strives to provide a comprehensive Pastoral Care program to reinforce these goals. At the heart of our Pastoral Care program is the Latin concept thus, we strive to act in the best interests of our students in every aspect of our curriculum both in and out of the classroom. With the IB Learner Profile at the heart of all aspects of our curriculum, we challenge students to embrace and live up to these core values daily and recognize students as much as possible when doing so. We also hope to incorporate an individualized approach to all students when implementing our Pastoral Care program as we know a “one-size-fits-all” approach will not help all students to realize our mission.
We envision Pastoral Care to encompass all aspects of student support outside the academic curriculum, such as:
- Character education
- House System
- Student Government
- Retreat program
- Travel-learning opportunities
- Extracurricular activities
These programs will be developed as we get a better sense of our students’ needs and the ISC community’s goals regarding pastoral care.
