Our Learning Philosophy
At Bella Vista, our mission is threefold:
- to promote a positive learning environment;
- to spark learner enthusiasm;
- and to provide a strong foundation for lifelong learning.
Our learning environment is positive, inviting, collaborative, and fun. It helps students share ideas, express creativity, and grow in knowledge and wisdom.
Our classes are taught by specialists in their field, published authors, and prize-winning college professors. Each class is concentrated over 4 weeks, with 4 hours of class contact per week (Monday through Thursday). Contrary to programs providing a more diluted format (1 hour per week for 16 weeks, for instance), our course structure is a tool which we use to immerse students completely within the subject.
