Counting on Success
Silicon Valley Education Foundation
This results-driven program brings a new clarity and confidence to kids who’ve been drowning in math class. Your gift gets results: A 2015 study found 8th graders more than twice as likely to hit benchmarks in algebra after completing Elevate Math. Not only does the curriculum, established by the Silicon Valley Education Foundation (SVEF), sharpen skills and blow away math anxiety, but it exposes teenagers from low-income families to careers that require and reward math skills.
Rural Teachers for the 21st Century
Oxford Teachers Academy
Help scale innovations piloted at Oxford Day Academy to other schools in underserved communities across the US, particularly those in forgotten rural communities. Roughly the same number of students are in urban as in rural schools, and they face many of the same barriers to academic success; despite this, roughly 90% of education reform funding has flowed into urban communities. The Oxford Teachers Academy catalyzes rural education reform by training rural residents in the best practices developed at Oxford Day Academy as they become credentialed, lifelong teachers for their local community.
