Our Story

Learner-Centered Collaborative is a non-profit that emerged from decades of experience in education—from classroom educator to district superintendent—spanning every corner of the country. Our team’s diverse set of experiences in education allowed us to see firsthand what works, identify the biggest challenges, and set ambitious goals for what is possible. We are guided by the persistent truth that a learner-centered approach is the foundation for a successful, thriving learning community. And we know that a shift to learner-centered is a collaborative endeavor.

Recognizing the complexity of change, driven by what’s best for learners, and informed by research and practice, we work closely with schools, districts, and states to find their new way forward. Leveraging our proprietary approach and framework, along with an expansive set of tools, we have helped hundreds of schools and over one million learners realize more personalized, authentic, competency-based, equitable, and inclusive learning experiences that put learners at the center.

Propelled by our passion and impact to date, we won’t be satisfied until all learners have the opportunity to engage in inclusive and equitable learning environments that empower them to know who they are, thrive in the community, and actively engage in the world as their best selves.
