LIVE AND STUDY WITH A COHORT.
Taking our cue from a long-lost educational strategy, we decided to revive the ancient master-disciple model of instruction…
…used so effectively by many of the world’s finest teachers, like Plato, Aristotle, and, yes, even Jesus of Nazareth. The idea is simple. Learning takes place best in small communities that afford the intimacy of sustained interpersonal contact between a teacher and his/her students.
So, we adopted this principle: We limit our cohorts to 30 students, joined a faculty member and a life and learning coach.
We limit our cohorts to 30 students.
We find that students crave this kind of communal learning experience, but the higher educational establishment has not (yet) made the shift. The result: The “most connected” generation in human history is, ironically, the loneliest generation in human history.
As human beings, we crave mentorship, relationship, companionship, partnership, and fellowship. We want our learning to relate to life, our teachers to relate to us, and our faith to relate to reality. In short, we want to be mentored, not lectured.

That’s why, at CreatEd, we leave no student “outside.” We eat together, play together, and travel together. We laugh together, cry together, and serve together. And, as a result, we grow together and share our human condition together. In the process, we all become more human together.
