In 2020, the Torrance Center began a new series of educational programs that build on the legacy and research of E. Paul Torrance. He stated in 1965 that one of the precepts of progressive education is that "Education is a continuous reconstruction of living experience that goes beyond the four walls of the classroom." The Torrance Signature Programs are designed in this spirit to inspire and enhance creative, imaginative and problem solving skills across the lifespan.
The Beyonders Challenge program was created in 2020 in order to fulfill students' desire for exposure to courses they would not necessarily be taking during their regular school hours. Our curriculum design is focused on creative thinking, active learning, and the role of context in education. This program is currently 100% online for the foreseeable future.
