The Hague Approach

The Hague Approach brings contemporary technology to focused, Harkness conference-style discourse.  At The Hague School, there are no rows of desks. Students prepare with a master instructor and come to the table ready to actively participate in facilitated peer-to-peer interaction, where they engage, create, and problem solve. The Hague Approach combines conference method learning with the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme, joining the two with an interdisciplinary, student-centered focus.  Learn more about this unique approach to instruction in the video below and in The Hague Approach Information Booklet.

At the table, students:

  • Learn to construct, advance, evaluate, and critique arguments across disciplines.
  • Learn to look beyond the surface, identifying the discrete foundational elements that comprise the whole.
  • Utilize an intentional schedule based on three core courses and two hour-long blocks of time reserved for an elective, seminar, or project offered each day, emphasizing student-centered, conference style dialogue.
