About the On-Grade Institute

The Institute is a 501(c)(3) [pending] organization, established to advance the development and implementation of the On-Grade Student Achievement Model. The Model represents a return to basics, with established definitive learning objectives, but with modern tools for tracking student progress and systemic process management technology. The On-Grade Model provides an unprecedented opportunity for all our students to achieve gap-free, on-grade learning and improved results.

The Institute believes that every student can graduate from high school prepared to succeed in life and that real, sustainable improvements in student achievement will happen with the application of on-grade teaching and learning.

The On-Grade Model was developed to solve systemic student achievement problems. It was created by a diverse team of education leaders, teachers, engineers, software designers and other professionals. They all share a commitment to develop a practical, low-cost and easily scalable solution to the systemic teaching and learning problems inhibiting U.S. student learning. It is the result of an in-depth, multi-year investigation and analysis of classroom and system performance challenges.
