Formation of Self: Caring for your amazing mind, body and heart
How do I deal with test anxiety? Is five hours of sleep enough? What is ‘executive function?’
At Mayfield, girls don’t go it alone. Our breakthrough "Formation of Self" program, or FOS for short, aims to address essential health, wellness and developmental needs of students. The bold curriculum extends through all four high school years with age-appropriate topics addressed at each grade level. Classes meet about twice a month and are taught by our team of student support experts. At the root of the program lies one of Cornelia Connelly's powerful statements:
“Be yourself, only make the self all that God wants it to be.”
Our innovative program speaks to essential topics for teenage girls.
In a uniquely incisive approach to health and wellness education, Mayfield experts have developed year-long seminars at each grade level. Students meet twice a month with our school nurse, counselor, or education specialist to discuss teen-relevant topics, including how to navigate new environments and relationships.
At the root of the program lies one of the seven goals of Holy Child education—“to promote the personal growth and development of all who participate in the life of the school.”
Stress vs. Anxiety
Organization, planning, time management
Study Skills & Learning Strategies
Self Exploration & Identity
