Process

  • Schedule info session (optional)

Schedule an optional info session with a Prisma team member if you'd like to learn more before applying.

  • Complete application

Tell us who you are , why you want to join Prisma and share a few pieces of work with us that you're proud of.

  • Interview via live video

Speak with a member of our Prisma team via live video. This is an opportunity for us to get to know each other a little better. This is not a formal interview, just a friendly conversation. While the interview is primarily with the learner, ideally we’d like to talk with their legal guardian during this time as well.

You'll receive a decision within a few days of completing your interview.

  • Onboard to Prisma

After you decide to join Prisma, we'll send you onboarding resources, do a tech check and make sure that you have all the tools you need to learn with us in advance of your official start date.

Frequently asked questions

Who is Prisma a good fit for?
+

Learners who choose Prisma may be extroverted, introverted, funny, opinionated, pensive, gregarious, eager, reserved, a little bit rebellious, and everything in between! A bit of curiosity and adaptability goes a long way in enabling learners to flourish in our community, and basic digital skills for navigating online learning are important too (We can help with this). Our goal is to see every child who learns with Prisma brimming with self-esteem, the confidence to be their authentic selves, a strong sense of personal agency, and passion for at least one thing that deeply excites them. We also are committed to fostering a collaborative and community-oriented environment that encourages kids to thrive.
