While almost every aspect of modern life has radically changed in the last century, schools have remained largely the same. In this innovation age, our future leaders need to have a modern approach to education.
That’s what Chris Whittle set off to change. Whittle has a vision to reimagine education so that it prepares children for a fundamentally different world.
Whittle School & Studios is the first truly modern institution providing a global education for preK-12th grade with campuses in the world’s leading cities. It is a highly integrated global learning community with an international faculty that teaches a curriculum with experiential learning.
It will boast a diverse student body with day and boarding students through a network of schools, with the first schools opening in the Fall of 2019 in both Washington, D.C. and Shenzhen, China, and plans for more than 30 campuses across the globe in the world’s most vibrant cities. The 30 campuses will work collaboratively through constant exchanges and online activities, creating an organization linked to a new collective intelligence unlike any single-site institution in the world.
