our curriculum

An education focused on your future

Our unique curriculum is informed by the most in-demand skills in the emerging workforce, the catalysts for a meaningful life, and the requirements for human progress.

A High School experience
like no other

We haven't just reimagined how you learn, but also what you learn. We've created a High School curriculum that focuses on the needs of today's world.

All of our programs follow the same future-ready curriculum with different levels of mastery, based on the duration of the program.

Every session, workshop, activity, and conversation is guided by the curriculum's explicit set of learning outcomes captured in what we call The Human Development Standards. These standards that when met will ensure that you are truly future-ready.

All of the essential
human literacies

Our Human Development Standards comprise over 600 defined competencies, mindsets, and behaviors that learners need to thrive and contribute in the world of both today and tomorrow.

They represent what you will learn, measure and evidence throughout any given learning journey in all four of our programs and serve as the requirement for graduation from our four-year High School.

Explore Our
Human Development Standards

Our Human Development Standards place equal emphasis on "hard skills" such as mathematical reasoning, scientific literacy, and technological skills - and "soft skills" such as emotional intelligence, communication, and problem-solving.

The result is "whole human" development, your development, and a readiness to take on whatever your future holds. The measure is your mastery across every aspect of the curriculum.

Choose your mission through
personalized learning

Everyone's path is different. This is why at the School of Humanity, you'll have a ton of options in how you achieve the Human Development Standards. We don't believe in rigid courses, pedantic lectures or spoon-feeding information.

Our learning paths are guided interdisciplinary experiences that ultimately become personalized to you. We believe that learning has no boundaries - which is why our learners can also gain credit for learning experiences that occur outside of "school".

An interdisciplinary approach and way of thinking

We know that it takes interdisciplinary thinking to understand our world, think creatively, and develop solutions to humanity's most pressing challenges.

That's why our learners get to apply transferrable competencies across multiple disciplines.

For example, we've seen our learners develop their moral reasoning by developing ethical blockchain platforms, explore the nature of their selfhood through creative artworks, and hone in their scientific literacy by designing a plan for food in space.

Flourishing for you,
and humanity

The central tenet of the School of Humanity's curriculum and model is the belief that a learner's self-love, self-understanding, and self-confidence are key to their future success in every format.

When you are really okay with you your future has no boundaries.
That's the power of flourishing.

All four of our programs treat flourishing as a centerpiece topic,
using discussions, projects and prompted introspection to enable

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.
