We believe there’s more than one way to do life.
And one definition of
success is not enough. 
Too often the choice posed is what college to pick. 


We FIND the freedom to choose when we quiet the voices of others’ expectations.
Learning emerges from curiosity. Education should stoke it, not cure it. 
We favor adventure and challenge over comfort and ease. W e   s t r e t c h.      

We are humans to be cultivated, not objects to be sorted. 
We value students over edifice. And crafting by hand over assembling by line.


The line between the real world and school -- between life and work -- is imaginary. 
The future is uncertain. That’s good.
Each person has distinct potential. Let’s not waste it.

All people deserve the chance to grow without soul-crushing debt. 

Education is an investment that we share. Because education is our chance to make the world betterWhat you do with your life matters to more than just you.
