One-Night Only Award-Winning Sundance Documentary, Most Likely to Succeed, Returns to Capitol Hill

Co-hosts, Blyth-Templeton Academy and Hill Center at the Old Naval Hospital on Capitol Hill join more than 3,500 communities nationwide in working to re-imagine the future and purpose of education for today's 21st-century learners.

'Most Likely to Succeed'

The public is invited to a one-night-only film screening of the acclaimed film "Most Likely to Succeed." On Wednesday, April 25, 2018, co-hosts Blyth-Templeton Academy, an innovative micro high school, and Hill Center, a nonprofit Capitol Hill-based community center, invite the community to join them in a worldwide campaign to re-imagine education in the 21st century. BTA and Hill Center are co-located at the Old Naval Hospital on Capitol Hill, where the film will be shown in Abraham Lincoln Hall at 7 p.m.

"Most Likely to Succeed" examines the history of education in the United States, revealing the growing shortcomings of conventional education methods in today’s innovative world. The film offers an inspiring look at what students and teachers are capable of – if we have the vision and courage to transform our schools. By exploring compelling new approaches that aim to transform learning as we know it, audience members call it the most compelling film ever done on the topic of school.

Given the rapid pace of change in today's 21st-century environment, the skills that are most highly valued are the ones that withstand the test of time - like problem-solving and innovation. But the traditional model of education doesn't reinforce these types of skills. This film highlights the ways in which we can rethink education to empower students to use their gifts and talents to change the world.

Directed by acclaimed documentarian Greg Whiteley, the film has been an official selection of two dozen of the world’s top film festivals, including Sundance, Tribeca, and AFI DOCS. It’s been featured at leading conferences on education, including ASU/GSV, SXSWedu, Harvard/Goldman Sachs, and NewSchools Venture Fund. In the past year, more than 3,500 communities have booked a screening of "Most Likely to Succeed".

The purpose of the event co-hosted by Blyth-Templeton Academy and the Hill Center DC is to foster meaningful discussion among educators, administrators, community members, parents and students about how current obstacles can be overcome and steps towards change can be taken at a local level. Born out of these conversations is a community-wide commitment to moving forward; transformational initiatives are undertaken, and real change is ignited.

This event, hosted in Hill Center’s Abraham Lincoln Hall on Wednesday, April 25, 2018, at 7 pm EST is open to the public. Admission is free and seating is limited. Reserve free tickets for the April 25 screening at http://info.blythtempleton.org/mlts-2018.
