Our approach

Learning designed for the 21stCentury

  • The latest in educational technology for self -paced mastery of literacy reading, writing and maths.
  • Deep Socratic discussions that hone powerful critical thinking, writing and speaking skills.
  • Hands-on projects designed to master the tools and skills needed to solve problems in the real world.
  • Written promises and covenants form a tightly bound community of individuals learning to form authentic friendships and honestly resolve interpersonal problems.

What Is Education For?

At Lexicon School, we start with the most important question: What is education for? We believe education is about discovering a calling and about answering the most fundamental questions: Who am I? Where am I going? How do my passions and talents connect with the world around me? How can I serve a great need and even change the world?

Our Educational Philosophy

We believe that students should be the agents and primary drivers of their own learning. We believe that the role of adults is to prepare the physical and social environment, and curate experiences to support this entrepreneurial journey.
