The Minerva Schools at KGI at ISD

Minerva will be on campus Tuesday September 16th  providing a lunch time presentation to all 11th and 12th grade students. I encourage each one of you to attend this presentation to learn what Minerva has to offer YOU! 

The Minerva Schools at KGI was founded in 2012 to provide an extraordinary education for the world's brightest and most motivated students. As a newly accredited student-centric university, Minerva is reimagining higher ed to be uniquely global, rigorous, and accessible through:

Rich global engagement: students will have a global residential experience, spending Freshman year in San Francisco with subsequent semesters in global hubs like Berlin, Buenos Aires, and NYC.

Structured academic growth: Minerva's curriculum is deliberately designed to help students master critical thinking, creative thinking, and effective communication through cornerstone courses, deep study within academic disciplines and capstone projects. Classes are held on a virtual learning platform that incorporates the latest science of learning research to encourage active learning.  

Accessible to the world's best and brightest: Tuition for the Freshman Class of 2015 will be $10k/year. The Founding Class of 2014 is among the most internationally diverse and impressive cohort in higher ed, with an acceptance rate below 3% and 80% of students coming from outside the US.  

If you would like to learn more about Minerva, visit the website or read recent press, including the September Atlantic Magazine cover story or MSNBC Morning Joe segment. Applications are open today at A representative from Minerva will be presenting the institution further at the International School of Dakar on September 16th 2014 at lunch time.
