How we're different

A better way to deliver instruction

We combine technology with 21st-century instruction techniques to deliver a modern, personalized, effective learning experience.

  • Emile Instruction

    1:1 Instruction

    We "flip" the classroom to engage students in self-directed study, supported by 100+ hours a year of 1:1 teacher interaction to keep students engaged every day, all year long.

  • Traditional Instruction

    "Sage on the stage"

    Traditional classrooms rely on teachers lecturing to a passive student audience – and with distance learning, student engagement all but disappears.

  • Emile Instruction

    Skills-based curriculum

    We teach every subject through the lens of three foundational, 21st-century skills: Critical Thinking, Comprehension and Communication.

  • Traditional Instruction

    Content-based curriculum

    Many schools teach the same core content that was taught in the 50s, while colleges and the professional world demand proficiency in a suite of critical skills.

  • Emile Instruction

    Mastery learning

    Our curriculum is designed to ensure every student achieves mastery based on their ability to articulate the concept, not just a quiz score.

  • Traditional Instruction

    Rote memorization

    90% of U.S. parents believe their kids are proficient in school, but data shows only a fraction of high school seniors achieve the mastery needed for college.

  • Emile Instruction

    Tech-enabled executive functioning

    We've built a proprietary tech platform that empowers students to teach themselves, and that tracks their progress with complete transparency.

  • Traditional Instruction

    Teacher-led communication

    Thousands of learning hours a year go untapped in schools because students are neither engaged nor equipped with the tools to learn efficiently on their own.
