How it works

Ascend mproves student performance by aligning goal-setting, parent and mentor communication, and career planning


Goals that matter

Students create short-term, semester-based goals that align with their long-term career aspirations. They can also work with their parents and mentors to establish a reward that will serve as an incentive to accomplish that goal.


Digital Villages of Support

Students recruit parents, mentors, educators, and counselors who can support them in achievement of their goal, provide assistance when needed, and celebrate important milestones.


Career Readiness

Ascend provides students with long-term career planning through the RIASEC personality assessment, career matching, and educational research tools.

What Our Students, Parents, and Educators Say

Ascend inspired me to set goals on things I thought were impossible for me. I raised my GPA 0.6 points- from a 3.4 to a 4.0.

Ascend was easy to use. My son was motivated to do well. I was worried about his grades and his future, and now I know he’s going to college.

The student engagement and outcomes have been impressive to witness. We’ve seen students raise Cs and Ds to As and Bs in a single semester.
