What is the Genius School?

Genius School is launching globally with a curriculum from Pre-K to High School in Sep 2021.

We are limiting classes globally to just 100 per grade in year one. Students can learn via home school, virtual classes or local microschools. All students will have a personalised Genius School learning pathway. Each will design a life around their passion and purpose and learn leadership, life and entrepreneur skills.

Each will also have the choice of graduating from the UK or US high school system recognized by the world’s leading universities. After graduation they can choose to join one of our partner universities, apprentice with one of our partner companies or launch their own company and receive startup funding from the school. Annual fees range from $3,000 for Pre-K to $6,000 for Grade 12.

CURRICULUM CONTENT FROM

Help young people. Help small guys. Because small guys will be big. Young people will have the seeds you bury in their minds, and when they grow up, they will change the world.

- jack Ma

Dear Parent,

If you are like most of the parents in our global community, you will be feeling the effects of the coronavirus pandemic deeply on your children. You will have, like many of us, had to learn entirely new skills to home school your children, whilst running your business, your household and family.

Unemployment is already at 165 Million and growing daily. As more countries come out of “lockdown” in the coming weeks and companies lose the support of their government grants and funding, many more will go bankrupt, causing unemployment to soar. We are heading into what experts are predicting to be the greatest financial crash in history.

The current education system is geared up to teach your children how to get a job but when they leave school, what jobs will there be for them to apply for? The one size fits all model of education is failing our children, resulting in learning experiences that are disengaging, irrelevant and redundant. The education system has not changed in over 100 years and yet today everything has changed.

It’s time for an education revolution. Your children deserve better.

The good news is we have already started the Education Revolution with the Genius School and you and your child can join it with us today, by completing the Youth Entrepreneur Academy

Your child will learn how to ‘create a job’ without needing to ‘get a job’. Each student will be connected to one global school where we are learning and growing together.

Genius Group is the world’s leading entrepreneur education group. We deliver a full entrepreneur education system which has already proven to be in high demand, with over 1.5 million students across 20,345 cities already using the curriculum in camps, events, accelerators, schools and companies.

Our curriculum is being used by leading companies and schools around the world. The faculty includes the world’s leading entrepreneurs and over 1,500 certified trainers. The campuses range from schools to colleges, resorts and co-working offices. The calendar includes over 500 local, online events and Microdegrees on our EdTech platform, GeniusU.

When you and your child join us in the Genius School’s Young Entrepreneur Academy, your child will experience a personalised and tailored approach to how they “create themselves a job”. Knowing and being able to display these crucial skills of entrepreneurship for delivering value in today's marketplace is how your child will create their own job.

By completing the 4 weeks Young Entrepreneur Academy, they will learn the process in a way that is personalised and in their flow. Working with some of the top entrepreneurs and educators from around the world, they will be able to present their plan and business with the winning teams being awarded up to $10,000 of prizes and investments in their business ideas.

For as little as one to two hours each day, your child will have the guidance of the mentors and educators as well as the support of a facilitator to implement a full plan from zero to an operational digital cash-generating pathway by the end of the four weeks.

We're bringing on board our first 60 young people now. So apply today, I wish you and your child all the best in your application and we look forward to working with you both!

What parents are saying

“I was really wondering what this was going to be about. But after Tianna had her debrief session with Karen, she was a different person. She was bubbly and excited about what she found out and really keen to share everything with me. She seems to be more focused on what she wanted to do after school is finished. As a parent, that is a big relief.”

- Cher, Mother of Tianna, 17-year-old, Australia.

“Thank you for investing time with James and I. It was really exciting to see James understand the characteristics of the different profiles and how by understanding his own profile, he can get more into “flow”. We have had many interesting conversations about how we can best work together to leverage off each other’s strengths

- Sam, Father of James, 12-year-old, Australia.

“A decision well worth making. We have seen remarkable improvements in our son’s confidence, social skills and study skills as well as motivation.”

- Jane, USA

“It improved our relationship with our son and willingness on his part to communicate with us more—he talks a lot of things over with us now.”

- Kyle, Singapore

“I just wanted to say how much I’ve learned from the past couple of weeks. I’ve grown my company, Kidfinity, so much, and much of the credit goes to GeniusU and all the great mentors and facilitators. Now going back to school, I feel like the company growth could be jeopardized due to having to lose 8-10 hours a day on schoolwork. I just wanted to extend my thanks for the great Young Entrepreneur Academy program.”

- Ben, 14-year-old, USA

Nurturing children to think with an entrepreneurial mindset is the best thing we can do for their present and future. Young Entrepreneur Academy cultivates their individual talents with positive energy and promotes hope and possibilities they would not know on their own or learn from school. They discover how much impact they can make to this world 1% at a time and make better decisions like what to do when at home. YEA is a life-time learning platform with so many experienced and kind-hearted entrepreneurs to feel safe for my kids to interact with. I can’t think of anywhere else I’d want my children to be to receive this transformation.”

- Sylvia, Mother of Ben and Vanessa, 14-year-old and 15-year-old.
