Frequently Asked Questions

Total tuition for the summer program is $1,450. This includes the initial $100 deposit, plus three payments of $450 throughout the course of the program.

You may also choose to pay upfront and receive a 5% discount.

We offer a 30% sibling discount for families with more than one student.

Tuition includes a full-time Program Guide to each cohort, access to our private Slack server, 1:1 coaching, and hands-on support throughout the duration of the 8 weeks.

Yes. The Journey is run fully online. As long as you have a working internet connection and a computer, you can attend sessions from wherever you are.

All sessions and group meetings will take place via carefully selected tools, which are free to use for our students.

We are now enrolling for summer 2024.
Sessions begin the week of June 10 and run continuously through August 1. Specific days and times depend on the cohort you select during the application process.

Live, interactive, virtual sessions are held twice per week on Mondays and Wednesdays, or Tuesdays and Thursdays.

During our weekly cohorts, we explore a topic presented by a Program Guide or a Guest Speaker. Through first principles thinking, we dissect problems, brainstorm solutions, and assess their viability.

Our learning process is inquiry-based and hands-on, with a clear bias for action. Our Program Guides offer guidance, support, and ask-thought provoking questions.

Students participate in small group discussions, conduct research in teams and collaborate. Each group will present their findings and pitch ideas to the larger cohort.

Every session will have its own flavor, but the collaboration can range from coming up with a business idea, creating a pitch, or researching the best solutions for the impact of AI in the workforce.

The Journey is for students and learners ages 13 – 17 years old, located anywhere around the world. We will consider younger learners on a case-by-case basis.

We require all students to be fluent in English since all sessions and group activities are conducted in English.

There are no grade-based requirements to participate in The Journey. All we ask is that you bring an open mind, have a curious mindset, and actively participate in the program.

You can apply for The Journey by filling out this form. A member of our team will get back to you within 2 business days.

Next, we will schedule a 30-minute informal, virtual meet and greet. In this meeting, we will get to know you and your family better, learn about your interests, and answer any questions you may have.

Absolutely. Most students do not have a business idea when they start The Journey. We spend the first few sessions learning how to create and validate new ideas.

Every student is expected to attend the two 2-hour sessions each week. We expect that students will attend all scheduled sessions. (If a student is unable to attend a session, we will do our best to accommodate a make-up session, though this is not guaranteed.)

Beyond time spent in each session, we recommend students spend 3-4 hours per week on their group project. Some students will decide to spend more hours, and we will fully support that.

After each session, we offer enriching materials for reading, researching and debating that students may choose to engage with during the week. Every student can go as deep as they want to. The more you put in, the more you get out.

Yes. We offer a 14-day money-back guarantee. If you have attended two weeks of sessions and aren’t satisfied with your experience, you can request a full refund. No questions asked.

Yes. We want every curious teenager to have the chance to attend The Journey, no matter their environment or financial situation.

Once you’ve been accepted to the program, you can request financial aid, which will be considered on a case-by-case basis.

We also offer a 30% sibling discount for families with more than one student.

Students will end The Journey with a tool kit of strategies and new ideas that they can apply to their own endeavors. Perhaps they’ll launch their business, or apply their learnings to school work and future careers.

They will be able to stay in touch with each other on our Discord server for alumni.

The Journey will also be launching a September 2024 cohort, which will allow students to learn even more. Sign up here to be notified about our September launch.
