Preparing Students for the Future

Edgi is on a mission to prepare students for a rapidly changing world. We offer 8-week courses for high school students that help them grapple with issues that are relevant to the world today and will stay relevant long into the future.


Student Testimonials


Real learning happens when we engage in meaningful dialogue. Our courses revolve around discussion sessions led by other students who have completed our program. This creates a challenging leadership opportunity for select Edgi alums.

Technological progress is impacting our lives in profound ways. Those who understand these changes are at a clear advantage. Our courses focus on the relevant challenges we face today, and offer space for open dialogue on the ethical dilemmas raised by these transformations.
