Our Philosophy

Phoenix Institute is based upon the idea that we must provide quality education at an affordable price to our students. Every effort is made to ensure that students have a positive educational experience. We hold our pride in teaching students through understanding and to meet every student where they are in their educational journey. By setting standards for admissions, hiring high quality faculty and staff, ensuring that all faculty and staff align with the organizational mission prior to stepping foot on campus, and challenging the normal way of academia, we find our model to be extremely effective in creating lifelong learners.

Our Educational Approach
We believe that each student learns in a unique way and we attempt to engage students with methods that allow their learning to be enhanced. As an institution, we derive most of our educational approaches from the ideals of Malcom Knowles, an educational theorist from the late 20th Century. His Theory of Andragogy is centered upon creating a higher education environment that engages students as adults and encourages the student to be part of their educational journey.  

We use methods including in person learning, practical exploration, hybrid delivery models, distance education and traditional methods of instruction. In many programs, we implore methods of assessments that stray from the traditional exams and focus on using assessments that focus on ensuring the student understands the concepts. We also seek to reduce student stress by eliminating standardized testing when we are able to as we believe that students learn better in these environments.
