Future Ready.

College Ready.

Every student who graduates from the CUBE will be prepared not just to go to college, but to thrive in college.  We believe that every student should excel in reading, writing, math, and the sciences.  The country's best colleges and university's need students with academic intelligence coupled with the social emotional skills and character dispositions necessary to solve the world's wicked problems. That's why our students will also go through significant work to improve their social and emotional intelligence.  

Joy in school and smiles on faces.

Are you tired of hearing the words "I don't know" and "boring" when you ask your student about school?  We are too.

The CUBE will inspire and activate the a love for learning and a genuine curiosity for knowledge.  We call it "learning that matters".  We inspire that learning by engaging deeply not just academically, but socially in the topics relevant, authentic and important to students today.  We aren't going to teach your student something "just in case" they might need it.  We will help them to find their own passions and discover that beautiful questions are more important than static answers.

Learners for Life.

As our world rapidly emerges into a time of intense technological change and rapid interconnectivity with people around the globe, we need agile workers to fill critical roles in jobs we don't even yet know exist.

The times of staying the same job for extended periods are over.  The pace of change is just too great.  Our students need the capacity to quickly learn new skills, gain new knowledge and quickly adjust to changes in the marketplace.  That capacity simple isn't built in most high schools today.  


Typical Questions

We know the choice for high school is challenging.  Here are some of the commons questions we receive about the CUBE. We invite you to ask more questions if they aren't answered here or on this website. Chances are if you have a question, there is another parent with the same question.  


How do I know my student will be ready for college?

The short answer.  Because the CUBE has the instructional expertise, research-back practices, and excellent resources to ensure every student is prepared academically to excel in college and beyond.

The longer answer.  Your student will be more ready for college upon graduation from the CUBE than most any other school, as we not only provide the foundational knowledge necessary to be successful, but we also spend significant time, energy, and resources to make sure your student has the problem solving skills and the social-emotional intelligence to make solid decisions in the face of peer pressure and other challenges.

Do you have sports and other extracurriculars at the CUBE?

Yes.  We will offer boys and girls soccer, boys and girls basketball, girls volleyball, boys lacrosse, and boys and girls cross country.  If the CUBE doesn't offer a particular sport (swimming, football, etc...) then students can participate via another school per CHSAA rules.

Yes on Coding.  Yes on Graphic and Media Arts.  Yes on following your passions.  The CUBE integrates coding, art, music, baking, and adventure into all of our Mash-Ups.  In addition, we hold time sacred for students to explore their passions both after school and via Acceleration Weeks.



Why the CUBE?

There is no more time in pubic education for incremental change.  Incremental change to programs and models has provided almost no significant change in student outcomes.  It's time that we not only rethink and reimagine schools, but that we actually take the chances to do school different.  

The CUBE reinvents what it means to learn for the future -- and not just for a select few, but for everyone.  Students need real, authentic learning that helps them to meet the challenges of the future while preparing them to enter college and career.
