Welcome to the Hero Project!


What makes a Hero? What qualities does he or she have? Which Hero qualities do I have? How can I gain more? 


Students will explore the concept of the Hero's Journey, a narrative framework that traces the path of a hero from ordinary life to extraordinary achievement. By analyzing examples of the Hero's Journey in literature, film, and real-life stories, students will gain a deeper understanding of the qualities that make a hero and how to apply those qualities in their own lives. 


Throughout the class, students will work on some amazing and incredible life-changing projects, using talents and interests they already have. Students will watch movies, study documents, write papers, give presentations, act out simulations, host guest speakers, read books/articles, and lead discussions. By the end of the Hero Project, those who pay the price of learning will have grown tremendously in their ability to notice, feel, think, move forward, and communicate.


The class will culminate with a living history museum where each student will dress up as a historical hero and present, using the skills and knowledge they have gained during the course.


“What is memorized is easily forgotten, what is understood is never forgotten.”  ~Dr. Adler


All classes are full-year classes. Students enrolled in a Fall Semester class will automatically enroll for Spring Semester in December to ensure their place in the class. Pricing is per semester.
