Signature Learning Experiences
Our days begin with Socratic discussions designed to engage learners in critical thinking, practice communication skills across lines of difference, and illuminate biases and thinking patterns.
Quests are project-based, hands-on challenges with a focus on social studies, the arts, and science. Learners answer tough questions with real-world implications.
Goal Setting & Check Ins
As self-directed learners, each individual is responsible for creating and meeting their academic goals. These goals are set in weekly meetings with our Guides and achieved with support from both Guides and Teammates.
Learners spend time pursuing their passions with experts and coaches to gain real insight into the world of each profession.
We employ the use of educational technology in order to create personalized pathways to learning. This allows learners to work at their own level and their own pace and centers mastery over memorization.
In our democratic environment, learners abide by student-created covenants, run for council seats, hold each other accountable to a system they've had a hand in creating.
