QUICK FACTS:

  • A program for educators ready to explore the idea of developing a new learning environment (e.g. a school or program) in the Metro Denver area

We seek Fellows who are open to developing themselves and their ideas. Previous startup experience, commitment to launching one’s idea, and/or a robust school or program design are not required.

  • Applications accepted on a rolling basis.
    Our cohort is nearly filled for the Fall 2019. A limited number of spots are open for applicants who apply over the summer, so we encourage you to apply as soon as possible!

 
 

What is the program?

The Moonshot School Launcher Fellowship allows individuals to explore the idea of designing and launching a new school or learning environment. Join our passionate community of founders at the Explore Stage (first of our three-stage fellowship), a part-time program in Fall 2019*. In this stage you will focus on:

  • Leadership development. Assess, explore, and build your leadership

  • School and/or program design. Co-design a new education vision with local students and families

  • Pathways to launch. Identify multiple pathways to get your idea from concept to launch

  • Community. Learn and build alongside values-aligned individuals


    *The Moonshot Fall 2019 cohort will meet approximately one evening per week (with pre-work) from late August through mid-December, with one weekend per month. Dates TBA. There is a $300 tuition fee but scholarships are available.
