Grades 9 and 10

School Hallway

In this class, we’ll develop our critical thinking and public speaking skills as we examine current events and big social questions. We’ll learn about the school to prison pipeline, debate the risks of artificial intelligence, and participate in a mock Congress session to enable our high-schoolers to create their own proposals to improve their communities.


All classes will include 6-9 students per class and will also include parent updates, take-home activities, and individualized progress reports.

If Pricing is a Concern...

Here are two ways to meet you where you are!

The DiF-Ferral Program

You tell a friend about DIF, and let them know you’ll both get a discount if they sign up. When they insert your name on our registration form, we’ll issue you both a discount. And the more people that reference you, the more you save:

  • Refer 1-3 Friends - You'll get a 50% discount and your referrals will each receive a 20% discount.

  • Refer 4+ Friends - You'll get a 100% (full) discount and your referrals will each receive a 20% discount.

Flexible Pricing

When you sign up for a class and begin the payment process, we’ll ask if you’re in need of financial support. We’ll ask a few simple questions, request a supporting document, and then invite you to select what you’re able to pay with no further questions asked.
