Hugo takes a student- first approach  

We start with the student and build a program customized to their interests, goals and learning style. We know this is a very different approach than other academic programs out there.


Below are answers to some of the more frequent questions we receive to help you decide if you would like to follow up further. We are always happy to set up a free consult to tell you more about our program and see if it’s a good fit.
