Who is EdisonLearning?
For more than a quarter of a century, EdisonLearning has been at the forefront of some of the most dramatic changes in America’s public education system. Throughout our history, we have provided a broad range of educational services to many schools across the United States.
Our outcomes are not solely based on student test scores – but on graduation rates, college acceptances, and meaningful jobs. We believe success is not solely about achieving academic results, it’s about securing futures.
MissionTo provide education solutions which help our partners eliminate the persistent disparity of academic opportunities and outcomes for students as a result of their socioeconomic circumstances.
We believe ...
... demographics, economics, and zip code should never be barriers to a high-quality education.
... in equity, hope, justice, courage, and resilience as the foundational values of everything we do.
... that every child in every home, community, and school deserves every chance to succeed.
The Nine Core Values™ are evident in all of EdisonLearning's work including our alternative learning academy model, our eCourse® curriculum, our client relationships, and our corporate culture.
