We help teachers make active, engaged learning possible every day.

Making classes active, engaging, and skills-focused is a daily challenge for any teacher. Finding new ways to motivate students to learn is tough in today’s busy classrooms.

We support teachers with effective strategies, resources, and tools for engaging students in active learning and focused skills practice.

“Opportunity Education offers us really useful templates that coach us for effective student conversations. With this preparation, I know what I’m looking for in my work with each student. We now have great discussions about what they need to do to achieve their goals.”

– Rachel R., English Teacher, Omaha

Students need more than academics – they need to understand their career options, their own strengths, and they need to develop the professionalism required to succeed in the workplace. The Pathways Program enables high schools to help students identify, develop, and pursue a path to their best-fit career.
