Why we do it
We believe that students who will meaningfully impact society throughout their lives need personalized, guided educational experiences that inspire them to explore, to question, and to generate and test their own ideas. Pioneer Academics® offers these experiences.
Our mission is to transcend cultural, geographic and socioeconomic barriers to educational engagement. That’s why we select student cohorts that bring together ideas and perspectives from diverse cultures and geographies. Such peer interaction challenges stereotypes, augments creativity, and heightens students' awareness of the global community in which we live.
Pioneer also transcends socioeconomic barriers by offering verifiable-need-based scholarships to outstanding students. This initiative enables more students to engage in in-depth exploration of their academic interests under the mentorship of thought leaders than would otherwise be possible.
Public Benefit Corporation
As a Public Benefit Corporation, Pioneer Academics is committed to act in a responsible and sustainable manner and to produce public benefit. It’s our way of setting a higher ethical standard for ourselves, and ensuring achievement of both our social mission and business goals.
Pioneer’s twofold public benefit, to transcend barriers to educational engagement and to financially assist socioeconomically disadvantaged students, has been part of our social mission since the beginning. In fact, we are pioneers in this regard.
Because we believe in transparency and accountability, we publish a report on our success at achieving our public benefit to society every two years.
We will improve the current academic culture by creating educational experiences that are inspiring and life-changing, that unlock students’ curiosity and creativity, and that involve international peer engagement encouraging students to challenge preconceived notions and embedded stereotypes.
