The Foundation

Creating 21st Century Classrooms

All Milestone C curricula have been designed by management-level Fortune 500 engineers, scientists, software developers, and aviators working in close consultation with seasoned educators. Each course has been carefully crafted to create an internship-style experience in the classroom, packed with hands-on projects emulating real-world practices.  Lectures are minimized and experiential activities are heavily employed.

Experiential Learning Laboratories

The Milestone C approach is to provide applied, hands-on context for the baseline STEM education all students receive in secondary schools. Our project-based curricula serve as learning laboratories where students’ interests are transformed, through hands-on experience, into substantiated confidence to make educated decisions about their futures, college and beyond.

Confidence & Motivation to Lead

Our learning tracks equip students with not only knowledge and hands-on experience, but also the professional skills necessary to excel as leaders in 21st century technology industries. Chief among these skills are the following:

  • Critical Thinking & Problem Solving

  • Leadership & Teamwork

  • Professional Conduct & Confidence

  • Communication & Conflict Resolution

  • Public Speaking & Formal Presentation

Graduates of Milestone C courses will benefit from these skills for a lifetime, regardless of the career path they choose. By creating internship-style experiences, Milestone C co-founders further seek to remedy what many young professionals often experience: getting into the wrong career field based on passion and interest, but without a thorough understanding of the day-to-day.
