  4. Critical thinking

    The ability to think clearly and rationally about what to do or what to believe based on the information at hand. In a world of information overload, being able to sift through data, determine what is and is not pertinent and draw one's own conclusions is a critically important skill.

  5. Self-management

    A grad of 2030 needs to be acutely aware of managing himself. This refers to managing stresses, sleep, nutrition, being physically active and generally being aware of how they are feeling and how they can live at both a healthy and optimal level of functionality.

  6. Citizen of Sustainability

    Our grads should deliberately act in a manner that promotes environmental, and financial, sustainability not just for themselves but for those around them. Fundamentally they are people who actively work towards leaving the planet in a better way than how they found it.

  7. Humility and Modesty

    In the culture of Crescent it is easy to be carried away with success or pride. The attainment of this is inevitable for Crescent graduates and something to be proud of, however it should be taken in stride, in such a way that is courteous and not over-imposing. Crescent graduates should be proud of the opportunity they have been given and conscientious of the fact that not all other came from the same backgrounds.

  9. Culturally aware

    As an aspect of Global Citizenship (which is a broad category) - in a globalized world, students will be working with people from all over the world and interacting with a multitude of cultures (likely through technology). Students will need to be able to not only be aware of, but also to empathize with different perspectives.

  10. Crescent should become co-educational.

    In a truly gender-equal future, being used to female peers, competitors and collaborators will be a basic trait that should not be delayed until adulthood/university. This applies professionally and interpersonally. Additionally, and this should be obvious: the students will enjoy school a lot more.

  11. Understand the Value of Respectful & Fair Relationships With Women

    As an all-boys school we have the extra duty of ensuring that our boys, while somewhat removed from the gender mixture of society, still have a positive, healthy, respectful and fair relationships with women as peers.

  12. Dynamic Communication Skills

    Students need to recognize that how they communicate, verbally and in writing, is critical to success in life. The graduate must understand that his words - thoughtfully selected and effectively employed - are important. Words in action ultimately determine how we are heard and understood - or not - by the world.

  13. A strong EQ (Emotional Quotient), determination and optimism

    EQ means having self awareness AND having the ability to understand the feelings of others (empathy). Good EQ is usually highly correlated to strong interpersonal skills. Determination and optimism see you through the good times and the bad.

  17. Resiliency.

    The need exists for us to prepare our sons for the tough roads that lie ahead. We should strive to teach our boys coping mechanisms and strategies for when they fail. And, together, we should be allowing them the opportunity to fail now such that when life gets tough they are prepared. Effectively dealing with life stresses is an essential aspect of developing one's character.

  18. Skills in a second language

    Global awareness is becoming increasingly important in this day and age, let alone 13 years from now. Having said that, a second language will be vital in surviving in the 'real world'. In addition, it will open up more jobs opportunities than a monolingual person and expose our grads to an appreciation for other cultures.
