The MACILOS Program is a replicable, innovative program using research-based instruction and curricula intertwined with real-life application. In part, MACILOS Program was created using the foundational principles of Abraham Maslow’s, “Hierarchy of needs” theory. Overall, the programs pyramid structure is designed to meet a student’s physiological needs, sense of safety, social needs, and self-esteem. Once these lower level deficiencies are met, a student’s academic growth is challenged to explore, discover and excel on their own using the knowledge they gain to reach their highest potential.
PHYSIOLOGICAL NEEDS: Proper nutrition – The MACILOS students are served, free of charge, breakfast, two protein snacks, (mid morning and mid afternoon), and a healthy lunch daily, low in sugars and fat.
SAFETY: Provide an environment where students feel safe and secure.
SOCIAL NEEDS: Students need a sense of belonging. They need to develop healthy friendships and feel loved. The MACILOS is a program that develops strong bonds and is designed for students to feel a sense of family with their peers and instructors. Throughout the fiscal school year, several social reinforcement trips are planned including a trip to Washington, D.C. and Orlando, Florida, “Home of the Gators.”(A Tutorial Instructor is assigned to go on all trips to assist with the students’ academics.)
ESTEEM: Students should be recognized for their achievements. In MACILOS, it isn’t where the student is – “it’s where they are going.” This program challenges where a student is weak and encourages them to achieve what they will need to do to become life-long productive, responsible, and successful young adults.
KNOWLEDGE: The academic success of a child depends on a team of individuals which includes parents, instructors, and students. By closely monitoring a student’s progress, academic gains are more easily reached.
BEHAVIOR: Students are given and learn to display the utmost respect for others. That includes their peers, staff, and their community.
SELF-ACTUALIZATION: Helping a student reach their highest potential is the ultimate quest of the MACILOS Program. MACILOS is designed to prepare students for “AFTER” graduation. There are many different avenues to success, however without preparation, (which includes the possibility of furthering a student’s education through a secondary means); students will not be ready for adulthood. Southgate has developed many partnerships with community businesses in career training along with Pima Community College. Many of our students will earn 1 year towards their Associate Degree upon High School Graduation.
