Students who are not being served well in a traditional school environment
Our academically rigorous program is tailored to your child's needs to help them discover – or rediscover– their love of learning.

Gifted and high-ability students
We do not set a limit on what a child should learn in school. We provide an extended curriculum to challenge students who are exceptionally able in their areas of strength while making sure that they are also growing in learning in other areas as well.

Students with diverse learning needs
Gifted students, as well as twice-exceptional and neuro-divergent children, are often insufficiently supported within a traditional school setting. Our approach includes differentiated study plans and the support of certified educators and psychologists.

Relocating families
Wherever your family is, your child can continue their studies with us. We work with families to ensure that students are fully prepared to transition to the high school of their choice.

    This wonderful school has become a breath of fresh air for our daughter and for us amidst total uncertainty. Olya is looking forward to every on-site session and is counting the days until she will meet with her classmates for fun and exploration. I would like to recommend anyone who is now on the move or searching for unconventional education for their kids to consider joining its hybrid school. Each lesson is informal and creative with meaningful communication between teachers and students for them to learn to critically analyze, raise questions and find answers on their own. Amazing and efficient education tools are coupled with sincere interest and respect for developing minds. This school is truly our hope for a better future.
