ALearn’s mission is to deliver high-quality math and college readiness programs to low-income, underserved students to increase their college aspirations and eligibility and to significantly raise their college-going rates.
ALearn was founded in 2007 with the goal of building the skills, knowledge, and confidence that students from underrepresented backgrounds need to succeed in college-track classes. Our Common Core Math, College Readiness, and Growth Mindset programs increase achievement and transforming student’s own identity and their perceptions of their future. Since 2007, ALearn has served over 11,000 students in Silicon Valley.
Our teachers apply what they learn at Professional Development training in their non-ALearn classrooms, reaching over 7,500 additional students in 2016 alone. We are contributing to the teacher pipeline, with 57% of our teaching assistants aspiring to become teachers.
