The curriculum drives opportunities to explore course concepts in and beyond the classroom. It challenges students to test credibility and demonstrate mastery through Action Projects.

How do educators collaborate and model learning they ask of their students?

Professional development programs support the implementation of our model, from single-unit Mastery Projects to integrated core courses to comprehensive school transformation models. In our blended learning format, educators are challenged to reflect, collaborate, build skill sets, and customize curriculum to serve their unique students and communities optimally.

Our programs enhance educators’ ability to design and implement interactive, learner-centered, project-based curriculum. Through practical, digestible, and inspiring PD programs, teachers increase engagement and earn student trust.

Professional development for educators


Why focus on experiential learning?

Instead of focusing on Industrial-era models that inadequately prepare students for the future, we focus on equipping students to thrive in tomorrow’s complex world. The curriculum invites students to experience an innovative approach to education—one that connects with each student, hones relevant skills, incorporates adaptive technologies, and embraces the practicality of real-world learning.

Experiential education encourages educators to guide learners through direct experience and focused reflection. Students are exposed to concepts and theories, examine and challenge premises, and apply lessons in multiple forms and contexts.
