What is Dual School?
We encourage students to learn by doing. Through a combination of self-directed exploration, support from adults as partners, and a sense of community, Dual School participants solve the pressing challenges facing our world today. During the program, students grow their sense of agency and develop the capacity to contribute meaningfully in the 21st century.
Students apply with problems they truly care about and craft a self-directed learning experience from that starting point.
Students are paired with mentors who help facilitate connections to professionals in their field of interest. These relationships lead to a deeper understanding of the problem space and allow students to make quick progress.
Students are pushed to test their assumptions by prototyping ideas. We help them find ways to run small experiments that lead to insights into their projects.
