Why Us? |
We're Different |
We are mission-driven, not profit-driven. As a tax-exempt nonprofit organization, our bottom line is increasing the quantity and quality of learning opportunities for learners of all ages, especially the disadvantaged. Kids, teens and adults. In classrooms, in learning centers, in training programs, in libraries, at home and at work.
We believe extra hours of structured learning are the best bet to close skills gaps. Schools can only do so much on their own without strong and consistent engagement of caring parents, vibrant and safe communities, and public support.
The only way that most disadvantaged children and youth can catch up is to get more hours - higher time-on-task when they are in school and opportunities for structured learning outside of regular school time and homework requirements.
College students and adults seeking skills improvement need learning that is targeted, accelerated and flexible.
That's why we've designed: learning centers and online learning options that can go anywhere; program models that help community programs and employers add learning components; and incentive models to encourage extra effort and reward achievement.
We offer more than product. If you want proven K-adult academic, career and life skills content and systems for your K-adult program or school - delivered online - we have what you want. And our academic curricula and resources are fully aligned to State standards in all States. But we offer more if you need and want it.
