About Primer

Our goal is simple: help the next generation of kids be more ambitious, more creative, and learn to think for themselves. To do that, we're creating a new education system— one that takes kids seriously.

At Primer, students learn at their own pace, pursue their passions, and get the 1:1 support they deserve every day. We started Primer because standard schools can’t possibly make space for every kid’s curiosities. But a small school connected to a big network can. Our goal with Primer isn’t to teach you everything under the sun—it’s actually the opposite. We want you to go deep on whatever it is that drives you. Because we think passion is the surest path to learning. And the world could use more of it. Come join us, and do your life work.

At Primer, we believe that kids are remarkable —

and our current system is underestimating them. We need a new system, one where we value what kids learn both outside and inside the classroom. Where they learn how to solve real problems, not pass tests. Where they learn how to think, instead of what to think.
