EMPOWERING STUDENTS WITH AGENCY TO CHANGE THE EDUCATIONAL PARADIGM
"Helping students own their future by owning their learning!"
8Degrees Up inspires schools to empower students with agency allowing them to personalize their learning. We believe that school is still the best environment to best prepare students for an unknown world, however, the focus of school must evolve to transcend knowledge and focus on the skills and dispositions that create a learning mindset.
At 8Degrees Up, we help schools make incremental progress in personalizing learning. We work with our clients to create customized solutions that honor the unique context of each school. True to our mission, our goal is to create a personalized pathway for every client

We believe schools must be learner-centered, empowering each child with the skills and dispositions to have agency in their learning.
For students to be prepared for their future they must internalize the learning process so they create and re-create their future.
We believe deeply that context matters and no two schools or students are alike.
To capture the human potential of our future, we must personalize the experience so that all students achieve high levels of success.
