Imagine Scholar / Catalyzing human potential

Situated in one of the world's most challenging geographies for youth development in South Africa, Imagine Scholar rewrites the purpose of education. Shifting the focus from metrics to mindsets, our human-centered curriculum ignites a love for learning and equips students with the tools they need to be effective leaders in the 21st-Century.

Equal parts "test-kitchen" and world-class education program, our program is designed to shatter the stigmas that surround rural education through innovation and iteration. We are developing an open-source blueprint for educational excellence for inquisitive learners who are dedicated to personal growth.
