curriculum Plus

Going beyond the classroom to transform college education.

At the Academy, education extends beyond the classroom in many ways. From micro-lectures to international study tours, CurriculumPlus offers students unconventional learning experiences that not only allow them to tailor their education to an unprecedented level, but also explore the places where innovation is happening, wherever it’s happening.

The mainstays of CurriculumPlus are the Responsive Learning Modules. Developed to complement Academy coursework, RLM sessions augment students’ classroom education and meet their individualized needs by providing them with critical learning opportunities, but without the full infrastructure of a semester-long course. As a result, RLMs are diverse enough to respond to a wide variety of student interests, and flexible enough to deliver each subject in the most useful and relevant way.

RLM sessions range in length from a few hours to a few weeks and can take many different shapes to suit the material.
