Customized Learning + Community
Unique learning-cohort programs that allow tweens and teens to have the best of both worlds
"The best way to predict the future
is to create it."
— Peter Drucker
Since 2020, The Hub’s mission has been to help adolescents thrive, by enabling them to have the best of both worlds—a customized, "this size fits you" education, as well as an uplifting community experience.
We do this by "unbundling" the cohort experience for tweens and teens, and recreating it in an empowering new format—online, small-group programs that are part-time, interdisciplinary and interest-led (with activities chosen jointly by the participants and facilitators). They can be paired with any other programs and activities (formal or informal, homeschooling/unschooling/worldschooling or even, in some cases, straight-up schooling) to meet an individual's full set of needs.
Our showcase learning-community programs are our micro-academies, which meet for two half-days a week during the academic year. We also offer shorter and more casual "à-la-carte" programs, including our new nano-academy. (We can help parents figure out the rest of the educational picture too, if desired.)
Being part of a vibrant and supportive learning community boosts well-being; challenges young people to go further than they could alone; and helps them develop the soft skills needed to be capable, confident, and well-rounded doers who can figure out what they want in life, and work effectively with others to make it happen.
But don't just take our word for it. Listen to what parents and participants have to say in this short overview video. You can also read The Hub's full story in more detail here.
