Welcome to One Schoolhouse
One Schoolhouse is built upon the strong foundations that leading independent schools have developed over decades and centuries: building authentic relationships with students; offering expansive opportunities; challenging students to reach beyond perceived limitations; and supporting students in their growth. Our students know that their teachers care about their learning and success.
That’s one of the primary reasons that around 100 schools have become a part of the One Schoolhouse, and more than 233 schools worked with us in the 2015-2016 school year alone. We share their values.
And yet, at One Schoolhouse, that is just the foundation. We believe strongly that every student learns differently, thus our programs and courses are learner-driven.
At One Schoolhouse, students are equipped with the capabilities to assess their strengths, challenges, goals, learning preferences, and motivations. This allows us to personalize instruction to the needs of each student, increasing efficiency and effectiveness around differentiation, remediation, and project-based learning. We believe that choice increases engagement, and engaged students learn more.This approach is different from those traditionally employed at independent schools, and yet is essential in the online learning space.
By working with One Schoolhouse, independent schools can explore new ways of teaching and learning through us as their own practice evolves. When an independent school enrolls many students in our classes, invites us to collaborate on professional development with its faculty, or encourages a teacher to apply to teach with us, that school not only gains a partner in delivering on its mission (as we are both built from the same foundation), but it also gains resources and guidance to experiment or to pilot new approaches to education.
We hope that you will join our efforts,
