    Rather than follow a standardized curriculum, our learners chart their own course, setting goals each week and then working hard to reach them - which gives them the power of self-discipline and self-management - a key to being successful in the new economy.

    Self-Directed Learning

    Humans are born wanting to learn, grow and master the skills they need to be successful in their lives. We channel this innate curiosity and drive, guiding, inspiring and equipping our Eagles to achieve mastery towards a purpose - not just to pass a grade.
