  • LEADERS IN PROJECT-BASED LEARNING

Free To Think. Inspired To Lead.

After so many years of stagnating in ideas and practices from the agrarian age, education is suddenly awash in new ideas.

All around us we hear about the value of technology, project-based learning, deeper learning, new brain research and a better understanding of how kids——or any of us, for that matter——really learn.

At iLEAD we’ve built a model based on the what we believe to be the best of all that is out there. We believe passionately in project-based learning not because it’s a fad but because it goes to the heart of how kids learn. We’ve incorporated technology not as a spiffy add-on but as an organic part of the learning process in the 21st century.

We value and encourage leadership not just as a part of a career track but by instilling in each learner the confidence and character that inspire others.

It’s not unusual that we want our learners to think for themselves. But to do this requires a grounding in the arts, in design and in humanities, and the need to feel at home in the world. For us, “thinking for themselves” is not just about solving problems but about an organic vision of the world they live in and one they will inherit.

Finally, we value the social and emotional development of our learners. We believe there is an implicit, as well as an explicit, curriculum to teach. Our goal is nothing short of learning, to change the world.

Our Community

We are a PEOPLE OF PURPOSE, establishing a NEW PARADIGM for education. We are a caring culture that VALUES COMMUNITY, which contributes to a better society.



Our focus on developing empathy allows for respect and invites an engaging, positive, rich environment. We believe people are natural-born learners. We provide opportunities for discovery and wonder to nurture a lifelong love of learning. Success is demonstrated through leadership, self-direction, problem-solving skills, creativity, collaboration, innovation and service. We embrace stepping out of our comfort zone. We value joy, fun, choice and voice, and we celebrate that our differences contribute to our common humanity.

Where culture thrives, passion follows.

The principal goal of education in the schools should be creating men and women who are capable of doing new things, not simply repeating what other generations have done; men and women who are creative, inventive, and discoverers, who can be critical and verify, not accept every thing they are offered.

It is no longer functional to define education as a process of 
transmitting what is known; it must now be defined as a lifelong process of
 continuing inquiry. And so the most important learning of all, for both
 children and adults, is learning how to learn, the skills of self-directed 
inquiry.
