Dexter's mission is to make a more intelligent world.

Dexter was founded in 2017 by a group of scientists, engineers, and educators who wanted to create a new education system designed to accelerate our collective development. A global school system that empowers students with powerful ideas in engineering, science, art, humanities, and entrepreneurship. A school that creates the builders of tomorrow.

We believe that every child should have access to a high-quality education and have committed to making Dexter radically accessible. Financially, we're the most affordable private school on the planet. Geographically, our students may attend from anywhere in the world through our online platform or growing network of physical campuses.

Our education philosophy aligns with cognitive science, not progressive education fads. We believe in core knowledge, direct instruction, active learning, regular tutoring, strong community values, and parental involvement.

"The best way to predict the future is to invent it."
- Alan Kay
