The Experience

At YourFuture we believe the foundation of learning is centered around relationships. This is why all sessions involve online face-to-face interactions led by our award-winning certified educators - who we call Experience Facilitators. Daily, students participate in interdisciplinary projects with peers through collaborative tasks, questioning, and critical thinking. Our students will develop core competencies that will equip them to solve world problems we face today and in the future.

 

At YourFuture our guiding principles help build confidence, apply creativity, and build a robust skillset while having FUN!

Student-Centered

Allows students to express their interests and have choices.

Competency Development

Understand, explore, and apply core competencies that will impact their future world. 

Active

Mental, social-emotional and physically stimulating.

Connected

Connecting with current world topics, with peers, and with the student's own space

Some of our Experience Facilitators 

To define a new standard for online learning we pulled from the world's best educators with a proven track record of creating student-centered authentic experiences and have spent the last 10+ years integrating technology in their classrooms. Our Teachers (we like to call them Experience Facilitators) are award-winning with digital certifications and years of experience not only creating rich digital learning experiences for students, but they are so good they often get asked to run workshops and keynote talks to inspire and help other educators all across the globe. Rest assured, you have the world's best working with your child.

What are parents saying?

Smiling Girl

Mother of 7  year old

It was an incredible experience!
They [students] constructed, expressed themselves, imagined, worked in groups, did physical activity breaks, and....we traveled to Mars.
We made new friends from around the world.
Do we really think that it's not possible to learn with technology?

Father of 6 year old

At some point during this quarantine, my son lost his spark. Through collaborating with kids his age, interactive and fun projects, physical activity, and  mindful reflection, he has completely re-emerged. YourFuture is pushing the limits on education and we are  BOTH loving it.

Father of 10/12 year old

I love that my kids are utilizing technology as a productivity and creation tool versus  just for gaming and social media.  Their overall digital literacy was heightened after just one week.
