Our mission is to provide students with opportunities and experiences like nowhere else.

Some students will even get the chance to travel internationally with Third Future Schools. Examples of Dyad classes offered at Third Future Schools:
Opportunities for 7th grade students to travel out-of-state and 8th grade students to travel abroad! We want our students to have strong content knowledge AND broad perspective. That’s why we invest in student travel.
In 2023, eligible 7th grade students traveled to Washington, D.C. at the end of May. Eligible 8th grade students traveled to Tokyo, Japan. This year, we have budgeted for similar travel opportunities.
Are you passionate about working with youth? Do you have a unique skill set that would enrich the lives of students in your community, and better prepare them for a rich and fulfilling life? If so, we would love to hear from you!
Example classes include: Photography, Design, Yoga, Coding, Musical Instruments, Comic Book Illustration, Sculpting, Mural Making, Weight Lifting, Foreign Language, and more! We want to expose our students to the wealth of knowledge that exists in their own community all around them. What are you an expert in? Come show our kids what you know.
Dyad requirements will be tracked by the school and students will be given plenty of opportunities to meet these requirements. If you have any questions about the Dyad Program, or for more information, please contact your school’s Dyad Coordinator:
