The Junior ILP program is based upon our ILP program for older students, but with age appropriate changes for younger participants. It is our belief that the earlier students begin to adopt a proactive, self-driven approach to learning the better. The Junior ILP program is structured around predefined topics to provide students with a specific scope for independent study and research. The structure combines in-class curriculum and exercises / tasks that students must work on outside of scheduled class times. At the end of each cohort, all participants present their work to an audience of peers and parents.
Eligibility and Guidelines
The Junior ILP program includes in-person class time and is currently only offered to students in the Austin area. Applicants must be at least 7 years old to be considered. Please note that this is NOT a drop-off class. Since our class members are so young, we ask that parents remain on-site.
Current / Upcoming classes
Our next Junior ILP cohort will launch in March 2018. If you’re not already subscribed to our mailing list, we invite you to join so you receive an email once applications have opened.
