Today's students will be tomorrow's leaders, using media not yet invented.

Will they be ready?

The Clio curriculum prepares students to navigate the digital world they are inheriting.



With Great Power Comes Great Responsibility

In just 50 years, we’ve created countless new ways to communicate. Yet the traditional secondary school curriculum pays little attention to the role of communication in society. It is our job, as educators, to empower students with the tools they need to thrive in the ever changing media environment.
