As the pandemic grips America, we can work together to keep every student on track to college and career. We offer an engaging, effective, and affordable educational experience—while ensuring the safety of your children and their teachers.

Applications

Cadence Learning seeks organization, school, and system leaders who are eager to provide their students with a high-quality distance learning experience that empowers local teachers to focus intently on students' academic and social success.

Cadence Learning is a not-for-profit, philanthropically funded entity. Our objective is to offer an exceptional virtual experience at an exceptionally low cost. We are offering the fall semester program for free for schools and districts enrolling fewer than 5000 students, and highly subsidized for those with larger enrollment, to ensure that affordability is never a barrier to accessing this unique educational opportunity.

Join us in

  • Offering dynamic, highly effective teaching and ambitious curricula to students everywhere,

  • Supplementing this targeted coursework with lively enrichment activities in the arts, movement, and recreation,

  • Creating a virtual community where children feel heard, valued, connected, and successful, and where curiosity and joy are fostered,

  • Mitigating learning gaps and equipping students with the essential skills for the new school year, and

  • Exposing students, parents, and teachers to mentor teachers—and the proven instructional practices that have closed achievement gaps in America’s highest performing schools.
