Welcome to eατ · πie Institute!
Originating as a non-profit organization,
Eat Pie has pursued one primary mission:
to create a self-sustaining learning network, in which the community teaches the community and anybody can affect change, regardless of age. More than that, it seeks connection and building friendships.
In 2013, Eat Pie sponsored its first summer internships for middle and high school students interested in teaching and mentoring. In 2015, the Institute
expanded to the humanities, hosting its first offerings in Speech and Debate. Currently, Eat Pie is run by Executive Director Sabrina Chen, along with the administration of Chief Instructor Joey Li.
For information regarding summer classes or internships, please click on and explore the Summer Program header, containing class descriptions and the insider's scoop on a day in Eat Pie.
Registration for Summer 2017 classes is now open and we are accepting applications!
Students will be placed in classes by ability, not by grade. New students will receive a placement test in late March to mid-April to determine class placement.
