A Real-World Take on Learning
In the MicroSociety program, students participate in entrepreneurship activities and take on roles such as school mayor and city planner. The program teaches students to solve real-world problems by thinking critically, collaborating in diverse teams and connecting subject matter and experiences in ways that foster creativity. MicroSociety was created by the late George Richmond, painter, poet, author and educator.
MicroSociety focuses on society-building as a strategy to ignite students’ desire to learn. Students emerge from the program college- and career-ready, equipped to take on global challenges and intrinsically motivated to learn new knowledge and skills.
