Custom-built Curricula

Why buy an off-the-shelf class for an individual learner? Meet your student where they are and design a school that prepares them for where they are going.

From choosing and shaping the best classes to matching with a great teacher, Cicero will help you build a structure that works for your student.


  • Alexander the Great had Aristotle.
  • Marcus Aurelius had Fronto.
  • Sophia from Quebec has Kyle Kirby.


The ancient model of one-to-one education puts the student-teacher relationship at the center of learning.

Personalized, flexible schooling is perfect for today’s expanding work/life options.

Private Teachers

You’ve tried online classes. You’ve tried boxed curricula. You’ve tried unit studies. Still struggling?
A private teacher (or 2+) can make the difference in sparking curiosity in your learner. The mentoring relationship encourages deep understanding and responsibility.

At Your Convenience

Whether you are combining school with travel, arts, or sports; Cicero schedules classes around your time constraints. Using all available technologies to find the best way to meet and communicate with your student. This can look like an intense, condensed semester or a class that is spread out to accommodate breaks.

How Does Personalized Learning Work

Our focus is on building a strong relationship between student and teacher. We do this through our one-on-one format that is student-centered and facilitated by inspiring, creative, expert teachers. To get a sense for what this looks and feels like, join us for a quick tour of a Cicero "classroom."

Yes. A number of our teachers are specialists in teaching neurodivergent children, including 2E kids. Several are executive function coaches, as well.

No problem. We would work with you, analyze your local school system’s curriculum, and design each course to enable you to return to traditional school in the future.

Each class is customized to your interests and needs. We find that most courses are designed for 1-2 live interactions per week + additional asynchronous work done over Docs, Discord, or whatever platform works for you.
