Students as Boss

We create digital learning games and instructional programs set in the professional world that build literacy and leadership skills for students.

Read to Lead

Literacy skills for the leaders of tomorrow.

Newly launched in summer 2015, Community in Crisis is the second game in the Read to Lead series for middle school students. Acting as executive director of a community service center, students must exercise leadership and literacy skills to succeed.

After the Storm is the first game in the Read to Lead series developed for middle school. Students play the role of editor-in-chief of a news magazine in a time of crisis.

The Sports Network-2 grew out of a grant from the Gates and Hewlett Foundations. It is among the very first learning games developed around the Common Core in English language arts and literacy. And it’s free. Play it today!

The Classic Simulations are learning games developed from our core beliefs of linking school to career. We offer a range of programs for middle school, junior high, and high school students.

What People Are Saying

“You have these kids who are often labeled as troublemakers and they know this. And you see their confidence level boost. This program has pushed them in the right way—the exact way they need to. I think because it’s so obvious this program has been developed by teachers. You can absolutely tell the difference.”

“This is my 7th year at Orr High School, and I’ve never worked with a program that had such a solid critical-thinking component. It’s pushed me to think about my teaching around this idea of problem solving.”
