Hear what parents say about edgi

"Edgi really helps open kids’ minds in ways that otherwise wouldn’t be and they will take that mindset to whatever they do. You’re teaching them how to think, how to learn, and how to explore in ways that aren’t just like getting to the test and passing it. The program is educating them to be curious thinkers, critical thinkers, to question, to argue different points of view, and to be able to see things from different perspectives.”

"It's not taking notes on something and then spitting back what you've said, which I think we all know, is not the way you learn. I think it definitely stimulates [my daughter]; it makes her think and exposes her to material that she probably wouldn't necessarily stumble on on her own.

"[My son] loved the class. He felt intellectually challenged and loved talking to people of like mind and intellect. I thought it was fantastic. I love what my son told me about and he would like to take another class. I'm very happy and my son will be signing up for more classes.
