Sal Khan from Khan World School at ASU Prep

“Khan World School at ASU Prep will unleash the potential of a new generation of students that will change the world we live in for the better. We do this by maximizing opportunities for student mastery, agency, collaboration and passion. A LOT of the thought went into translating the vision from my book The One World Schoolhouse into a comprehensive and engaging high school model. I encourage you to explore this website and attend a virtual info session to decide whether you might be a fit.”

– Sal Khan, Founder Khan Academy

The Khan World School would be the perfect challenge for me. I love new challenges and finding ways to overcome them.

– Z.A.

I am overjoyed to help the school trailblaze a new way to do online school.

– G.G.

I can still learn the way I like to learn, on my own time, but I can also learn with peers and a teacher as a guide not a lecturer. I’m excited to learn outside the box with peers to make a better world.

– L.W.

I am in awe of the preparation and dedication it must have taken for everything to work so seamlessly.

– M.W.

Main focus is a learning community. I thrive learning with other students through discussion and debate, especially when I am a part of a small group of students who support and challenge each other.
