LEARN to START

School Program

POWERED BY THE STARTUP STUDIO

TIME
FOR
CHANGE

The Startup Studio is a world leader in providing a disruptive solution to high schools. Our mission is to bring real and sustainable change into education so as to ensure students are learning the imperative “soft skills” that are now highly demanded by a 21st Century economy.

Our school program focuses on students and their story

The Learn to Start School Program is not a business course. The Startup Studio is founded on the belief that traditional business courses are ineffective in assisting students in preparing for the 21st century world.

A NEW
IDEA IN
EDUCATION

Using a new model in education, we build the essential skills in students through the discipline of entrepreneurship, but where entrepreneurship is simply the vehicle, never the expected outcome.

OUR
PROMISE

To deliver to young people a disruptive model of education founded on empowerment, performance, and wellness to prepare them for lives of free agency.

EMPOWERMENT

Knowing yourself is the key to building empowered human beings. That is why at The Startup Studio it all begins with Story. We must help students discover themselves and remove them from a world where they are in a constant state of online bombardment and social media clutter. If we do that, we can begin building in them their true potential and show them how to properly tell their real Story in the world.

PERFORMANCE

We build students capable of accomplishing real outcomes based in their interests and passions. At The Startup Studio we believe the only real metric worth measuring to quantify student success is the one that answers the question – What can you do? That is the only metric that will matter to a 21st century marketplace employer.

WELLNESS

We seek to bring meaning to students who are currently challenged to reduce a very real relevance gap. At The Startup Studio we believe that the only way to accomplish that is to build powerful learning environments founded in love and trust where the teacher is replaced by powerful mentorship that is all supported by a new and cutting-edge disruptive model in education.

“Students need to be trained to be
life-long learners

capable of handling constant change so as to be prepared for lives that enable them to monetize through multiple professions and career choices.”


- ANASTASIA HALL, Director of Curriculum & Training

HOW WE
DO IT

Our school program is built around our trademarked process called Learn to Start which consists of five key pillars. Our course accommodates up to three years of high school while being paced effectively to ensure students can succeed in all their subjects.

Story - a pillar of our school program

STORY

Participants are challenged to tap into their own story and realize its amazing power.

Team - a pillar of our school program

TEAM

Participants work in teams so as to experience, learn, and understand the power of effective collaboration.

Build - a pillar of our school program

BUILD

Participants explore multiple  processes of modeling a creative  thought from ideation to execution but with the focus always on the builder and never the methodology.

Pivot - a pillar of our school program

PIVOT

Participants use critical thinking to move from ideation to actual solution and value proposition creation, understanding that failure is the best learning tool.

Pitch - a pillar of our school program

PITCH

We explore the true art of  effective communication and the importance of selling yourself through self-branding to understand the power of self and the power of relationships.
