About Us:

Elevate K-12 is on a mission to ensure every student receives a high-quality education, regardless of zip code. We are changing the way classrooms work by creating a brand new category of LIVE, virtual classroom instruction that gives students access to exceptional, certified, live teachers through our two-sided network. Our teachers are securely streamed in from across the country into thousands of classrooms, providing instruction that would otherwise be unavailable in many districts across the U.S. Our goal is to enable high-quality, live teaching for every learner in the U.S., from kindergarten through their first jobs, so they can identify and pursue their unique passions in life. We are the new way to the classroom!

Elevate K-12 is a series-C funded (led by General Catalyst), high-growth, EdTech company enjoying strong business momentum. We are growing rapidly within a $72B+ TAM and have a first-mover/first-scaler advantage.
