Elevating students to reach new heights through empowerment.
Profound Learning is an empowerment model of learning that elevates student learning to heights not achievable using the traditional ‘command and control’ industrial age model of education. Allowing students to take control of and responsibility for their own learning has proven to increase motivation and the effectiveness of learning. Along with high academic excellence, the Profound Learning model prepares students for their future with a focus on innovation and creativity.
Master’s Profound Learning model goes beyond academic preparation and the traditional system of education. A learning framework has been established by Imaginal Education. This comprehensive ecosystem can be recreated and scaled around the world.
A Proven Model
Master’s Academy & College, founded in 1997 by Tom Rudmik, is the prototype school where Profound Learning is being developed. The Academy has gained international recognition for becoming one of the top performing K-12 schools in North America by implementing the Profound Learning Model of Education. Over the years, Master’s students have consistently out performed provincial norms for excellence by at least four times the provincial average.

Innovation is fueled by the ability to challenge orthodoxy or dogma of the system. The factory model of education is established on the following two axioms: the time to learn is fixed and the quality of learning is variable. These axioms have gone unchallenged for decades, which have led educators to believe that student performance in the system is primarily a reflection of their ability to learn and not a by-product of the system itself.
The Profound Learning model challenges the orthodoxy of education. In order to create a system where the time to learn is personalized and the quality of learning is tight, new systems were invented through which learning is managed.
