Become a student of the Great Works Academy at your high school

Enter the discussion with the authors who shaped our civilization.


Thanks to great works, you will learn to get to know yourself and the world in a completely new way.Let yourself be carried away by the story and build your critical thinking, concentration and the ability to reason intelligently.

  • We discuss shorter, timeless works. The preparation should not take you more than 2 hours.

  • We don't learn about the works by heart, but we discuss important topics.

  • We are testing critical thinking and reading literacy without grading. You can see your improvement that way.

  • We have our own online library and mobile application. You will find works, preparation and additional materials there.

  • You can graduate from the academy also as part of the DofE- it can be one of your goals.

Program price

The real price of the program in 2022/2023 per student is 800 euros. Thanks to our partners and received grants, the student's tuition is for a year 160 euros,with the fact that the student can also apply for a scholarship.

This price includes

  • a modern online library with film, literary, musical and visual works for 25 seminars including assignments, short preparation, supplementary materials and feedback.

  • 20-25 discussion seminars designed according to the model of the best foreign educational institutions, aimed at the development of critical thinking, reading literacy, concentration and the ability to discuss culturedly

  • professional reading comprehension tests at the beginning and end of the program to show the student's progress during this period

  • final certificate

It may seem like a lot, but it is 6 euros per seminar. 6 euros for the accessible work, an hour and a half of high-quality discussion, for tests and the work of the people who prepared the methodology. 6 euros, that's the price of one pizza, 2 coffees and maybe 3 beers. Compared to a seminar, it is less likely that pizza, coffee or beer will develop thinking, lead to the discovery of great works, inspiring discussions and thus change lives.
