About ADVANTAGES Digital Learning Solutions
In 2006, ADVANTAGES Digital Learning Solutions was founded by a small group of teachers and educators that wanted to develop a simple solution to offer kids everywhere, access to great academic content, regardless of their zip code. Our simple beginning consisted of weekly meetings in a coffee shop with free WIFI and decent lattes, where we began to build our own online school and digital platform allowing our vision to take shape.
Starting with the enrollment of a few displaced students that had nowhere else to go, we saw proof that kids could, and would, achieve success with our newly developed alternative to traditional school programming. With determination, sacrifice and enormous support from our families, our program was born. We left our salaried positions with the districts and universities we worked with, so we could devote our time to our new business. Initially, we wanted to affect change in our own community, but we quickly learned that our reach could expand the globe, taking us across all 50 states in the US, and into more than 30 countries to date.
The ADVANTAGES DLS mission is to assist all learners on their path to a high-quality education by providing tools and resources to personalize learning both locally and abroad. We do this by providing education institutions with the resources to manage all aspects of student information, curriculum management and learning management in a single integrated education management platform.
Today, ADVANTAGES DLS and our accredited online school, ADVANTAGES School International, are still owned and operated by the same passionate team of education professionals that started it. Since those early stages, we have been strategically designing and building digital components into a single system that would support our own students as well as provide flexibility in meeting the needs of our partners around the world. Our ASSIST Platform components work together seamlessly with our online school, to capture and manage information relevant to the educational workplace, student success and the desired outcomes. Our programs are designed to complement online, blended, or traditional school environments with innovative solutions and world-class support.
Headquartered now in Northern Nevada with our own coffee machine, our well-rounded team is comprised of experts in university admissions, curriculum development, program and platform implementation and school administration. Our team has become an authority on accreditation standards and compliance, teacher support programing with best practices, professional development, and school program design.
ADVANTAGES DLS and Advantages School International was developed by teachers, for teachers.
