Preparing students for success in a rapidly changing world.

An outstanding education should be available to all, regardless of zip code. One8 focuses on helping schools and teachers prepare students for success, focusing on STEM and 21st century skills and applied learning opportunities. We pilot promising programs and school models and scale those with proven results.

We emphasize applied learning where students learn rigorous content and use their new knowledge to solve authentic problems like those professionals’ tackle in the real world. Applied learning increases knowledge, understanding, student excitement and engagement.

Most of our education work is concentrated in Massachusetts. 


For years, too many students have sat in math and science classrooms asking “when will I ever use this?”, struggling to maintain the motivation and curiosity necessary for deeper learning. Applied learning erases this problem.
