…that school can be fundamentally different. We believe that it’s possible to create an experience for young people that is more than merely preparing them for college and their careers. We believe that it’s possible to start with the idea of passion and create a model that helps people identify theirs. Passion is our impetus. Agency is our goal.

…that the learner can and should be a designer of their own learning.

…that the learning and growth of the adults is just as important as the learning of children.


We are currently looking for people that share our passion and beliefs about what is possible. To do this work, we are rethinking traditional roles and responsibilities.

We are looking for educators who can provide the support and structure for learners to develop the skills and mindsets necessary to design their own learning. These individuals will facilitate interdisciplinary, project based learning, serve as advisors for a group of learners, and form partnerships to engage learners in real-world learning opportunities in and outside of the classroom.

As we learn more about our model through data gathering and design iteration, we are able to further articulate the core competencies needed by our educators. View our shared, working document that outlines our Teacher Competencies.
