Since January of 2014, Da Vinci Schools have hosted over 125 education contingencies from six continents. This interest is a testament to the high degree of innovation taking place in our schools and to our efforts to prepare students with 21st century skills. It also represents educators’ sincere desire to learn new ways to engage, motivate, and ensure student success in college and in the workforce so as to maximize high-skilled job placement. The Da Vinci Institute was created to share best practices of the Da Vinci Schools and meet the needs of educators from around the world looking to learn more about our schools. The Institute also serves as an incubator for new ideas for Da Vinci School leaders and staff as they interact and share best practices with visitors from around the world. The Da Vinci Institute offers various professional learning opportunities designed to meet the diverse needs of the educational groups interested in learning more about Da Vinci: domestic and international School Tours/Site Visits; formal Professional Development workshops and multi-day institutes; the LAUSD Linked Learning/Career Pathways Partnership; and the Da Vinci Fellowship Program.
