Making Strides as Individuals and as a Community
Our Mission in Action
To respond to our changing world, education must leverage technology to create accessible learning experiences, personalized for each learner’s needs. This is Stride's mission: To help learners of all ages reach their full potential through inspired teaching and personalized learning. And we've been delivering on this mission for more than 20 years.
While change may be inevitable, we choose how we respond. At Stride, we encourage adaptability and flexibility in our learners, teachers, and support teams. Through Stride Career Prep, project-based learning and real-world experiences teach high school students critical thinking and collaboration skills they need to prepare for a rapidly changing future. And our career development programs like Galvanize, Tech Elevator, and MedCerts give adult learners access to lifelong learning opportunities for upskilling and reimagining their future.
Why? Because at Stride, we're committed to learning that's #FutureBuilt.
To help each learner—regardless of personal identity or circumstances—achieve their full potential, Stride provides quality, personalized education with the flexibility that allows people to fit learning into their lives. We meet learners where they are and help them get where they want to be.
At Stride, we place high value on the relationships that come from educators and learners actively engaging in the learning process. And we know we can all learn from and support one another as we progress. We build in multitiered support for all members of Stride’s community, forming a support network for learners, Learning Coaches, teachers, and mentors. By recognizing that the lifelong journey of education requires support, we can all grow stronger as we work together.
