Our Programs

How does Summer School work?

Our internationally accredited certificate-bearing six-week Summer School program is open to qualified learners between the ages of 13 – 18 from around the world. You can join either online, or in-person in Dubai, with three hours of live interactive workshops each day for four days per week, along with self-paced interactive learning modules. You can learn more about our Summer School here.

How does your full-time high school work?

Our soon-to-be-accredited 4-year high school program is designed to deliver a comprehensive, mind-expanding, and enriching preparation for the future to learners from around the world. While the program is online-first, learners from select cities can opt into a hybrid option. These co-learning spaces will enable learners to engage with other learners, meet with facilitators and mentors, and attend workshops.

You can learn more about the program here.

Is your High School accredited?

Yes! We are a registered online High School in the United States and are fully internationally accredited by Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC).

 

WASC has long been recognized as a leading accrediting body, providing accreditation to public and private universities, colleges and schools in both the US and globally. You can find out more about WASC here.

Application Process

What informs your application requirements?

At School of Humanity, learning is driven by curiosity and a desire to better the world. This is why we look for learners with an enthusiasm for learning and a desire to better themselves. We also have some pre-requisites including Grade 8 equivalency in Math, English & Science.

What can I do to increase my chances of being accepted?

Be yourself! We want to get to know you as a human being. You do the application process justice when you are authentic about your interests, expectations and goals with the program.

How long does it take to complete the application?

It takes between 30-45 minutes to complete the initial application form. After submitting the form, shortlisted learners are invited for an interview.

Our Model

How is your model different than traditional schools?

There are many things that make us different from a traditional school. Instead of isolated subjects, we learn in an interdisciplinary and project-based way, tackling global challenges. We don’t assess learning through traditional standardized exams. Our assessments are meaningful, project-based, and open to personalization.

Real-world experiences are embedded into the curriculum through industry mentorship and micro-internships. While our model is fully online, it is still designed to be interactive, social, and personalized. We also connect in-person at our annual gathering!

What do learners do every day?

A typical day consists of live workshops, sessions with your mentor, and interactive learning models. There is a balance of synchronous (live) and asynchronous (self-paced) learning. While some sessions are at fixed times, learners also get flexibility in their schedule should they need it.

How do the co-learning spaces work?

Learners have the option to participate in co-learning spaces in select cities globally at an additional fee. These spaces provide an optional opportunity for learners to socialize with other learners, with adult supervision and on-site learning support – as well as providing equitable access to wifi and resources.

Tuition

How much does it cost?

Our pricing varies from program to program. You can learn more about our pricing here.

What if I can't afford the program?

We offer partial and full financial aid to a number of learners every year. We encourage you to apply for financial aid if you can’t afford our program. We do our best to make sure our programs are as accessible as possible.

How does the financial aid work?

Learners can indicate their need for financial aid when applying to a program. We have a verification process after the learner is accepted in order to ensure financial need. Please note, applying to our program does not guarantee access to financial aid.

Our Curriculum

Is it a STEM-focused curriculum?

Not necessarily! We place equal emphasis on the arts and humanities, ensuring there is something for everyone – regardless of their area of interest.

Is the curriculum the same for all of the programs?

Yes, but with different requirements and degrees of Mastery depending on the length of the program. For example, during our 6-week summer school program, we don’t expect learners to accomplish the same level of mastery of standards as our 4-year high school.

What are the different grade levels you offer?

Our programs are designed for learners ages 13 to 18, which is often equivalent to grades 9 to 12. We also welcome younger gifted learners who meet our entry requirements. Our competency-based model means that learners can progress through the curriculum and master the standards at a pace that works best for them.

Weekly Experience

Will there be opportunities for socialization?

Absolutely! Our workshops and live sessions are highly interactive, with lots of group activities, exercises, and discussions. We also host a lot of game and social nights – as well as in-person meet ups at our co-learning spaces. We also organize an annual in-person gathering in different locations each year!

When are the live sessions?

Depends on the cohort! Considering that we have learners participating from many different countries, we do our best to organize cohorts by time zone and usually have at least three parallel cohorts across three different time zones. Learners can indicate their time zone when applying to our program.

How many hours a week do I need to commit?

Depends on the program! Our full-time high school demands a minimum of 30 hours a week of commitment. Our summer school program requires a minimum of 15 hours a week of commitment.

Will I be in lectures all day?

Absolutely not. There are three hours of live sessions every day, four days a week – leaving time for creative flow and self-paced learning. All of our live sessions are also highly interactive and social experiences.
