Expeditionary Learning (EL) is a leading K-12 non-profit organization committed to creating classrooms where teachers can fulfill their highest aspirations and where students can achieve more than they think possible. With more than 20 years of experience helping new and veteran teachers in all settings, EL builds their capacity to ignite each student’s motivation, persistence, and compassion so they become active contributors to building a better world and succeed in school, college, career, and life.

The innovative curriculum and model of professional development for teachers are anchored by a vision of student success that joins academic achievement, character, and high-quality work. With the support of the Kauffman Foundation, EL partners with ten Kansas City schools to align literacy practices to the Common Core curriculum and support the professional development of teachers.
