About the Class

When I was twelve I dropped out of middle school to become an unschooler, the self-directed form of homeschooler. My parents weren’t teaching me and I wasn’t following a standardized curriculum.

Instead, I created a curriculum for myself. I found mentors, educational resources, and built the support systems to enable myself to learn anything.

Despite not going to middle or high school, I was still able to get into an elite liberal arts school, Hendrix, which I then left seven months later to found UnCollege.org.

In the last year, I’ve written a book about my experience with self-directed learning called Hacking Your Education. The book doesn’t come out until March 5th, but this class will give you a taste of how to going about learning anything.

At the end of this course you’ll feel confident learning anything. When your boss asks you to take on a project you have no idea how to do (i.e. build a media strategy with your biology degree) you’ll say “yes” and take on the challenge!

Throughout the course I’ll help you create your own independent learning plan, develop mentorship relationships, find educational resources, and set up system of peer accountability.
