Outlier empowers high school students to be college ready, earn credits, and save time & money through best-in-class dual-enrollment courses. By expanding course offerings and subjects offered beyond AP curriculum, Outlier enables students to boost their college applications and accelerate their paths to graduation. Our flexible scheduling and enrollment options build students’ confidence for college with the full support of our Student Success team.
Who we are: Outlier.org was founded by Aaron Rasmussen, co-founder of MasterClass, and has been named one of TIME Magazine’s Best Inventions of 2020. We are a small, intellectually curious group of people working hard to combine our backgrounds in pedagogy and course design, documentary film, teaching, student support and technology to build the best version of each introductory college course.
What we do: At Outlier, we are on a mission to expand access to high-quality education and reduce student debt. Our team is producing open access, introductory college courses for everyone who wants to learn, with transferable credit from the University of Pittsburgh. We’ve hand-picked instructors from schools like Yale, MIT, and Harvard, to develop deeply engaging, interactive, online courses that preserve on-campus outcomes and cost $400, which is often 80% less than a traditional college course.
