What Makes Dual School Unique?

  • projects-icon

    Projects of personal importance

    Students apply with problems they truly care about and craft a self-directed learning experience from that starting point.

  • connections-icon

    Connections to professionals

    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.
