OUr pillars

To what do we hold ourselves accountable?


It started with a simple question: What is the goal of education?

Our answer: to develop self-driven, autonomous, ethical thinkers and problem solvers.

With that focus in mind, we combined our decades of experience in education, the latest research, science, theory,  and evidence, and a wall of Post-It notes. From there, we began to distill our belief that thinking and learning must be many things if it is to be lasting and deep. Through a rigorous process of taxonomy and brainstorming, we arrived at the three pillars which guide our approach each day.
