Why Us?


Studio Be has three main goals for students.

Purpose

By the end of the Studio, students will have the opportunity to clarify their sense of purpose by reflecting on their deep-dive into an area of interest.

Creation

We help students become bona fide content creators by using industry-standard writing and creation techniques and digitally publishing their work for a real-world audience.

Expertise

We aim to help students deeply understand their area of interest and develop a zest for learning by sharpening their research skills in an authentic, high-interest topic.

What We'll Do


Each week, students will learn from a variety of sources, including Doctor Adrienne “Doc” MacIain, Coach Alex, and the Studio Be Sketch Team. They will get individualized support from their Studio Be coach, and they’ll get to collaborate with a team of 3-8 kids their age from around the country, who are developing their own content. Students will process and apply what they’ve learned through team meetings and 1:1 conversations with their coach.
