We partner with professors from around the world. We ask them what topics they are researching and what questions they are asking themselves. Then, we build inquiry-based curriculum around those questions and teach those classes to high school students.
We believe in cutting-edge scholarship, critical thinking, and sharing discoveries. We encourage rigorous (but not ad hominem) discourse, questioning textbooks and teachers alike, and tirelessly trying to improve what we do.
We make history relevant and personal, fascinating and fun. Social sciences, as a discipline, could be more of these things, and we’re determined to make that happen.
In an era of mass-produced textbooks and pre-recorded video classes, we built a small and cozy classroom environment with teachers and peers that students can actually talk to.
We create brilliant classes that challenge students to think deeply and critically, while at the same time, making them totally enjoyable. As they should always be.
