In New York City, PowerMyLearning has served over 40,000 students, along with their families and teachers, across all 5 boroughs since our founding in 1999. By providing key tools, training and support, our programs are designed to foster growth in teachers as instructional leaders, in parents as support partners, and in students as learners who can meet the challenge of high academic standards.

We have found that the power of digital learning lies in its ability to fuel personalized instruction and student-driven learning in an integrated way. To do this effectively, we believe it must be used to strengthen the face-to-face interactions among all of the key players that impact achievement – students, teachers, and parents – and to address the learning students do in the classroom and beyond.
Through our direct work with families, including workshops and family events, we help schools engage parents in their children’s education and extend learning beyond the classroom walls.

In New York City, PowerMyLearning offers a series of comprehensive and targeted programs designed to meet schools’ unique needs. Programs can be focused specifically on increasing family engagement or supporting educators with personalized learning, or they can have a broader focus on addressing the needs of students, teachers, and families together.
We select partner schools based on a shared commitment to helping all students, parents, and teachers leverage the power of digital learning to improve educational outcomes. PowerMyLearning partner schools must be public schools, either traditional or charter, that serve a significant portion of students who receive free or reduced-price lunch. Schools must also have a demonstrated interest in adopting blended learning, extending learning beyond the classroom, and engaging families in the learning process.
“With the support of PowerMyLearning, blended learning has become contagious in our school community. Our teachers are better able to differentiate instruction based on student needs, and students are taking more ownership of their learning. This partnership has been one of our smartest investments.”
