Our Approach

  • Mixed Ages

    Our studios are designed with an understanding that ability is not determined by age and that in an open environment, learners naturally learn from other learners with different interests, skills, and ability levels.

  • Projects With Purpose

    Wonders focus on solving real-world problems, pressing issues that reflect the world around us.  These projects bring together multiple disciplines and engage learners by allowing each to focus on areas of individual interest and ability.

  • Mastery Focused

    At Wonder, our learners have the opportunity to learn at their own pace, allowing them to excel quickly in areas of strength and take the time to learn thoroughly before moving on in others. This allows each learner to continually be challenged by their work.

  • Learner-Driven

    We believe that young people are capable of far more than they are tasked with today. By challenging learners to independently set and attain personal learning goals, with a long-term orientation, they gain ownership in their work and are able to realize their true potential.

  • Experienced Guidance

    Our Studio Coaches are lifelong learners, experienced in their fields, and passionate about the work they do.  Learners at Wonder will learn alongside entrepreneurs, engineers, artists, designers and advanced learners from a wide range of disciplines.

It is a miracle that curiosity survives formal education.
