Our name "Hekademia"...
...is rooted in the philosophical traditions of ancient Greece.
Our courses, technology, and philosophy are inspired by 15 years of successful instructional design at Virtual High School, our founding partner in Bayfield, Ontario.
Our name is rooted in the philosophical traditions of ancient Greece. Hekademia is the archaic name for Akademia, the sacred olive grove on which Plato founded his school of philosophy in 387 BC. Plato's academy was eventually destroyed in 86 BC, but his principles of enlightenment and inquisition persist into our modern age. We believe that, in some small way, we are part of this grand lineage.
