Giving Tuesday

We are forever grateful for the continual support our school community shows us. Today is a day is a day internationally recognized as a day of giving. As you consider participating in Giving Tuesday, we ask that you consider a few ways to support the schools of the Étude Group. As always, we accept donations that help our Expanding Horizons fund. At its core, this fund helps us ensure that all students, regardless of socio-economic status, can access opportunities to further their educational goals. This includes funding for college vis22852135 10155935150184124 2781729095894290688 n2its, field experiences that integrate with student projects partial scholarships for international travel, after school programs that support college persistence such as ACT Prep, and opportunities for our students to work with high level professionals. All of these experiences build off of the work done in our school to help our young people after school. 

This past summer we rebranded under the Étude name. With this rebranding comes a new line of clothing to show people you support the schools of the Étude Group. We have an online store through Mountain Promotions as well as options available in our schools which can be seen here under In-Stock Apparel. Please consider supporting our schools by wearing some Étude apparel for that someone special or yourself. 

Thank you for helping the schools of the Étude Group continue our work of creating the next generation of changemakers!

There is something to a name. Names have meaning and too often we take them granted without ever exploring their meanings. Nike is the name of a greek god of victory; an appropriate name for a athletic shoe company. Lego stems from the dutch phrase leg godt, which means “play well”. The term Étude was was also selected in order to assign a single word to our educational philosophy.
