Do students get high school or college credit?

We’re working on this. Please let us know if you have any expertise in this area, as it can be a laborious process. In the mean time, we’re handing out smart certificates that students can insert into their personal portfolios and college applications. 

Is the topical information political?

No. This course is about the processes and practices behind media, journalism, advertising, PR and influence/persuasion. All political parties make a lot of mistakes in these areas, and we’ll laugh at a few examples. Generally, the course doesn’t get heavily into politics.

What's up with the pricing?

We’re trying to keep class sizes really small, and the course is super high value. These are life skills that will stick with students (like riding a bike). The pricing is comparable to summer recreation camps and dog boarding for several days. It’s also much less expensive than a few days of calculus tutoring ($1400) and Roberto Cavalli designer pet clothing ($5,000+).  

Why can't my kids take the course online?

This option in forthcoming. In the mean time, we’re getting back to basics with in-person instruction that’s humorous, engaging and highly informative. The information will soak in deep. The course text is an actual bound book, too!

Can my student get a scholarship or a sponsored course?

Yes! We encourage aunts, uncles, parents, grandparents and other community influencers to sponsor kids here:

It’s an easy checkout process. We contact the student to coordinate schedules.
