The Areté Learning Model
Qualia’s groundbreaking model, based on 14 years as a leader in next-generation education, combines passion-driven, student-centered learning with an enticingly rich college preparatory curriculum. At Qualia, high-capacity, high-curiosity kids chart unique paths based on a deep love of knowledge and ideas. An intentional community as well as a school, Qualia is a model and incubator for a world based on authentic dialogue, joyful inquiry, and extraordinary vision.
This new campus, breaking ground in the Fall of 2021, will feature intellectual depth, close mentoring, and student-led learning, combined with a customized, mastery-based path to higher learning and careers. In addition, we plan to crank up student ownership, agency and participation to “11,” serving as a model for authentic student participation in school creation, planning and growth. Further innovations will emerge from brainstorming sessions with the students themselves, beginning this summer and built into the fabric of the school year.
