The mind is not a vessel to be filled, but a fire to be kindled.
— Plutarch

What We Believe

  • Humans are born to be learners. We all start out curious and excited to learn; we should honor that spark and do everything in our power to preserve it.

  • When a child is empowered as a learner, there is no stopping him or her.

  • Education is no longer about moving information from one person to another. It’s a quest we are lucky to be on together.

What’s Different About Prenda?

  • Everything we do is designed to empower learners. It starts when a child chooses to be a learner.

  • We use technology to personalize learning and as a tool for creation, combined with rich in-person experience.

  • Our adult guides focus on individual connection with students. They coach, mentor, and support instead of giving lessons and grading papers.

Upcoming Sessions
We have dozens of microschools starting their school year in August 2019 in many parts of Arizona.
