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 is
expanding to the humanities, hosting its first offerings in Speech and Debate as well as a novel course called Theory of Everything in 2016.
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.
Early Application Deadline: April 3, 2016
Regular Application: April 30, 2015
All late applications will be evaluated on a rolling basis.
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.

Eat Pie has coached the 5th Place Team in the U.S.A.,
