Teaching to Students’ Strengths

Our research and professional development models provide tools for making good decisions about curriculum and instruction.

CTE and the Common Core Standards

The Math-in-CTE professional development model connects CTE curricula with the Common Core math standards.

What Problem Do Programs of Study Solve?

Programs of study (POS) are the most recent effort in the United States to improve the transition of youth from high school to the workplace.



The nation's community colleges play a critical role in offering students access to affordable postsecondary education. Completion of a community college degree or credential can provide a path to a well-paying career or to further education. However, only about one-third of students who enroll in community college complete a degree or credential.

Professional Development That Works

Our professional development models provide evidence-based solutions to pressing problems, including how to get students engaged in school, improve their academic and technical achievement, and help them transition successfully from high school to college and careers.
