The Mastery School of Hawken is a new high school in Cleveland’s University Circle designed with students and the future in mind. We’ll welcome our founding class in August 2020.

Research confirms what we already know: students learn best — and are healthiest — when they are active participants in their education, partnering with talented faculty on work that matters.

Here’s our question:

What if that was all school did?

For more than a decade, Hawken faculty have created nationally recognized programs that place students in the real world and engage them in solving authentic problems.

The Mastery School of Hawken will take this innovative programming to scale.

We’re building The Mastery School of Hawken on a foundation of three bedrock principles:

Courses and programs organized around real-world problem solving.

A mentorship approach to instruction allowing for more project-based and personalized learning.

An assessment model that leads students to learn deeply and persist to mastery.

We know what happens when students feel the stretch, not the stress: intellectual breakthroughs and authentic engagement.

Students dig in because their work matters; it affects real people; it offers real solutions to real problems.

The result: wise and capable young people, ready and willing to be citizens of consequence in the world they will inhabit.
