A new 2-year college in Portland, OR at the heart of a movement to revolutionize higher education.
Our 2-year program is anchored by 9 core courses in communication, social change, teamwork, and leadership that will help you on any path. From there, you handcraft your own curriculum that is built on your strengths, interests, and desires with the support of your personal Guide. There are no cookie-cutter tracks. It's education by odyssey, with qualified and dedicated Guides helping you choose each next step.
A close-knit network of people who sees students as individuals and treats them as human beings, not numbers. Community and college should be woven together. We will learn, we will teach, we will serve, and we will explore. Together.
Learning happens beyond the classroom - around our neighborhood and around the world. As a student, you will gain real-world experience through internships and mentorships in your field of interest, and you will have the opportunity go on Learn and Explore trips - adventures that will stretch your world view.
Students are not evaluated in the application process based on grades or test scores. We look at the ways you want to contribute to the world, learn, and grow. You are a human to be cultivated, not an object to be sorted.
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. The real choice is what life to pick. When we each live life on purpose, we all thrive.
