Our Studios

Using the best of both worlds

Our studios are a blend of the old and the new – a return to the community schoolhouses that built America – with the best of modern technology and 21st century organizational design.

In a tightly knit community bound by shared mission, promises and accountability, young people develop deep friendships and the skills to keep them for the long run.

Spark Studio

Ages 5-7

Grow a unique, curious and independent spirit

We believe young children are capable of learning necessary skills like reading and mathematical reasoning at their own pace and in their own way.

We create an environment in which children are free to explore and play, allowing their own curiosity to be the spark that ignites learning. Along the way, they also develop vital character traits and social skills like kindness, empathy, honesty, critical thinking, the satisfaction of performing hard work, responsibility, and joy in learning.

Inspired by Montessori principles and Socratic teaching methods, our Spark Studio is a holistic environment that aims to stimulate children’s minds, spirits, and bodies as they figure out the world around them and their place in it.

Discovery Studio

Ages 7-11

Develop a deep love of learning and kindness in relationships with others

In our Discovery Studio we lay the foundation for the joy of learning as we encourage our young heroes to find their life’s calling and tap into their unique genius. Our well-balanced educational experience ignites curiosity, creativity, and the ability to ask good questions.

Adventure Studio

Ages 11-14

Work hard, develop real-world skills, and adventure into the real world

We believe each of our students will find a passion — something they love and have a gift to do – finding and pursuing this gift we call the Hero’s Journey. Our mission is to equip our students with the skills and tools they will need to find and pursue their life’s purpose. During these transformative years, we inspire our young people to develop independent thinking, strong friendships, leadership skills, and pursue their work with integrity.

Launchpad Studio

Ages 14-18

Discover a next step in your Hero's Journey so you launch out of high school with a vision and a calling that could change the world

While still in the planning stages, Launchpad students get ready for real-world success by gaining valuable skills, mastering them through apprenticeships, and launching real startups, businesses, and projects. Students surround themselves with mentor entrepreneurs, artists, scientists, and heroes in the field they’re passionate about. In this Studio, students get to hone their skills and talents while building a portfolio that proves what they can do.
