The upcoming decades will be a major challenge for humanity. Today's teenage generation will inherit an uncertain and rapidly changing world. But our education system 200 years ago was not designed to teach the methodology to cope with changes we now face. It’s time to change that!

Our goal is that our students will be able to respond to the challenges of the world with their practical knowledge so that they can confidently face the uncertainties of the future by using their problem-solving skills.

The world is changing and we need to study the network of relations to understand and respond to this change. The isolated existence of subjects must be transformed into global thinking.

Research predicts that by the year 2040, jobs will be created which are yet unknown. Our goal is to prepare our students to constantly redesign themselves.

Rather than the current education system which can be thought of as a static institution that hasn't changed in centuries, our goal is to offer a place to learn, and have opportunities that can easily and purposefully follow the rhythm of a changing world.

We welcome to the Grund everyone who feels the same.

How We Do It

How We Do It

We work with groups of 10 to 15 students which allows for personalized education. The standard curriculum has been modified into project units, which allows for more individual learning. The topics usually change weekly and are repeated cyclically throughout the year. As the goal is to acquire practical knowledge, we place great emphasis on practice within each project.

Methodological changes allow students to gain time by completing the year in 21 weeks instead of the average 33 weeks. In the remaining time, they can dive deeper into the topics of their curriculum, learn more, or re-learn each section where they need it. Students collect credits throughout the year and build a portfolio of what they have learned, thus redesigning the process of grading.

Since 1967, the Clonlara school in Michigan has been offering an external studies program. Through this school, there is an opportunity for Hungarian students to get a baccalaureate, to obtain the American final exam. If the goal is to study abroad and/or to get into some of the world's top universities,  we can help.

Electives Student’s Choice of Topics


In addition to the credit requirements in academic subjects, students:

  • Submit Portfolio of Work
  • Complete  Exit Exam
  • Submission of a Reading List
  • Community Service*

Carnegie Credit Units (180 hours = 1 credit unit) are used as the basis for Clonlara School credit. It is recommended that students hold a job for pay before graduation.  Graduating students submit a portfolio of their experiences and work and must successfully complete an exit examination.

Most students earn between 5-6 credits per year. Students looking to accelerate their learning may earn up to 9 credits per year.  Electives may be in a variety of areas – imagination and resources are the only limitations!

A kreativitás pont annyira fontos ma az iskolákban, mint az írástudás. Ezért ugyanakkora hangsúlyt is kell kapnia.
