Our Story

EMERGE Global was started in 2016 by University of Southern California (USC) Professor Jeremiah O’Brian with the founding philosophy to expand access to high-quality performing arts training regardless of students’ geography, socioeconomic status, or level of formal education.

Through a founding partnership with USC, a top academic institution based in Los Angeles, California, EMERGE created a unique virtual educational experience connecting the college’s top professors with students anywhere in the world in real time. EMERGE has gone on to partner with universities across the United States and serve thousands of students in more than 180 countries, with everything from online university courses to college admissions help to continuing education across a wide range of subjects.

We believe students should never be priced out of learning and so at EMERGE are committed to giving each student the access to find their highest potential.

Parents Reviews

“Even though it's online, the classes are discussion-heavy and the kids all know each other and interact even outside of classes. Yes, the workload can be quite a bit, and it's not for everyone but if the student puts the time in and can stay organized, focused, and open to communicating, it's doable. Shout out to the staff for all the hard work they do. This is NOT your typical virtual school.”

“Emerge Global is simply the best! My daughter is a complicated student with a high IQ. We've been searching for the right educational fit for her entire life. COVID brought us to online learning and we saw that this was her niche. EG has given her the opportunity to excel at her own pace, in her own way. The success she's seen has brought her confidence and desire to excel as well as bring back her passion for learning.”

“Throughout my years as a student I have been to private, public, magnet, and online schools, but none of those experiences compare to the EG online campus. When I first joined Emerge I was worried. At Emerge, the live sessions were stimulating and engaging, the teachers were invested in my learning, the work was actually interesting, and my peers were amazing!”
