Roger Clap Vision
At the Clap, we believe that all students are intellectual sense-makers and should be treated as such through provided academic and/or socio-emotional supports to push academic independence and build confidence in each student’s ability to succeed. We will use these tools to ignite a curiosity to grow and promote the development of lifelong, independent learners.
