Summary

For decades, most college prep private schools have been elusive to the middle class, requiring financial sacrifice for families. Over the past few years a new model has emerged – one that offers a high-quality and academically rigorous experience but at half the cost. These schools – sometimes called “micro schools” – are often smaller, employ experiential learning models, and lean on technology to help them deliver a student-centered education that is customizable to meet individual needs. This panel will take you through what this model looks like in practice, explore whether it is sustainable, and discuss the potential impact of these new schools on American education as a whole.
