Design Thinking describes problem solving by prioritizing the consumer's needs above all else. It relies on observing, with empathy, how people interact with their environments, and employs an iterative, hands-on approach to creating innovative solutions.

ModSchool borrows the proven success of Design Thinking and applies it to Dynamic Learning in a hands-on, virtual environment. There are many well-researched benefits of interdisciplinary, authentic learning compared to more traditional pedagogical methods of separating subject areas such as math, writing, and more, such as increased motivation, engagement, and achievement.

Now more than ever, it is crucial that the current generation of students know how to synthesize and transfer knowledge of multiple disciplines in order to creatively solve complex problems. Our team of educators have designed a curriculum of rigorous and relevant projects that incorporate the sciences and humanities, while adapting to newly emerging technologies in virtual and hybrid education.



ModSchool’s project-based curriculum creates a Dynamic Learning environment by challenging students to solve a central, real-world problem through innovation as they master academic content across several core subject areas. Students demonstrate their learning by presenting and defending their projects to authentic audiences through entrepreneurial initiatives.

Students systematically develop social-emotional and entrepreneurial skills that prepare them for the demands of college and career. They collaborate with peers, mentors and community stakeholders to achieve project goals, create deliverables that impact their communities, and demonstrate the outcomes of their learning.


ModSchool’s mission is to empower students from all cultures and ethnicities to become bold, empathic and inventive leaders through the interdisciplinary reasoning and transformative power of hands-on, project-based learning.

One of the five principles of education is preparation for change. Project-based learning serves as our foundation to best cultivate these values.



It is currently estimated that 65% of the jobs the future will hold have not yet been invented. Our vision is to have adaptive, critical thinking students at the forefront of change for future generations.

As a result of their unique academic experience, ModSchool students will have necessary problem solving skills, as well as a strong social and emotional foundation to innovate and succeed.
