What we do

We develop and advocate for innovations that systematically meet students where they are and connect them to where they

need to be

We’re changing the century-old paradigm of schooling — where all same-aged students learn the same thing at the same time — to one that provides each and every student with an educational program more attuned to their unique strengths and needs.

Achieving this objective requires working with families, schools, and state and federal leaders who are committed to modernizing our nation’s approach to schooling.

The shift to tailored acceleration

In math, students are generally taught skills that correspond to their enrolled grade-level, regardless of where they are starting from. Those who are behind tend to fall even further behind since math is cumulative and unfinished learning can readily accumulate. And those who are ahead can have a hard time accelerating further.

To overcome these challenges, we build solutions allowing students to experience tailored acceleration. It’s an approach focused on a personalized mix of pre-, on-, and post-grade skills designed to help each and every student catch up and get ahead. 

And we do this while adhering to the principles of high expectations, rigorous accountability, and educational equity.

Traditional Instruction

Tailored Acceleration

Instruction is focused on achieving grade-level proficiency over a single school year.

Instruction is focused on accelerating mathematical understanding efficiently. Some may not need a full year, while others may need more time to achieve grade-level proficiency.

Teachers focus on covering current grade-level skills for all students, regardless of their unique starting points.

Because math is cumulative, teachers focus on a strategic mix of pre-, on-, and post-grade skills that best enables each student to accelerate.

Student mastery of current grade-level curriculum is paramount.

Student mastery of essential skills, from all levels, is paramount.

Growth reflects changes in performance relative to grade-level skills.

Growth is measured relative to a student’s starting point.

Classroom teachers instruct students on the same skills at the same time regardless of individual student skill needs.

Each student can focus on the specific skills they personally need.
