Burbrella Learning Academy
Burbrella Learning Academy, an online and on-the-ground microschool network, believes that learning should be personalized, allowing each child to grow academically and holistically. A combination of STEAM, nature-based, project-driven, and play-based curriculum, along with a non-traditional nurturing approach sets Burbrella apart and attracts participants.n less than two years, its reach has extended to serve 16 states, indicating the efficacy and demand for its approach. Refocusing education by shifting the emphasis from rote memorization to hands-on, experiential learning that sparks curiosity and a love for learning Burbrella redefines education by creating a nurturing environment where students can develop their unique talents and reach their full potential. If awarded the $1 million Yass Prize, Burbrella would use the funding to provide its current North Carolina students and teachers with their own school building, which would allow the academy to serve all grades from preschool to grade 12 in one place. It would also expand to open non-traditional learning environments in all 16 states that its online school currently serves.
