Future Iris University

Pre-Collegiate Intensive Program

Core Focus Areas

Mathematics & Critical Thinking, Technology, English, Portuguese, and Theology

The Iris Pre-Collegiate Intensive Program is a one-year program intended to fill in educational gaps and elevate disadvantaged students to an international standard. Every student of Iris University must first attend this intensive.

This is meant to be a one-year, hands-on, interactive training that will build confidence and upskill our students, practically equipping them to achieve their dreams. The core classes will be offered in three distinct modules. We also intend to offer short courses, workshops, and team building activities to grow our students. We are doing this program in partnership with professionals from the tech industry as well as students and faculty from top universities. We envision rolling out this program globally and to eventually build a training center in Silicon Valley.
