There are a total of 72 lectures in the series and no topic is repeated. Students or groups do not need to start at the beginning of PRIME, but can step into any section of PRIME.

  • Is it possible to get college credit from PRIME?

    Yes. When you sign up for PRIME, credit is already included for your first five students. It is optional to take advantage of this, but it is also a great incentive for parents to buy in. Each section of PRIME is worth 1 semester credit. Students can get up to 4 credits if they attend all four sections of PRIME.

  • What is the level of the content in the lectures?

    It is college level content, packaged in a way that is appropriate for the attention span of a high school student. The content is not exhaustive, but it is designed to spark a new curiosity regarding topics that go beyond what they are usually exposed to in Sunday school and Youth groups.

  • Are there age limitations on who can enroll in PRIME?

    Highschool students, College students and young adults have all reported that the content and topics are extremely relevant to their current context. We think the ideal age is 16-24 year olds, but many adults, especially parents of young adults, find the topics very helpful. Students should have completed 8th grade as a minimum.

  • Is the scheduling of the program customizable?

    Yes. We will provide to you what we did and how we did it, but you are able to rearrange the components however they fit best for your group. We offered three lectures a week over 6 weeks. Some groups have done two lectures a week over 9 weeks during a Fall or Spring term.
