Sisu Academy
AltSchool Partnership

We are proud to announce Sisu Academy was recently invited to join the 2018 - 2019 cohort of just 12 schools from across the nation who are working together to deliver an innovative educational experience. 


Partnering with the AltSchool is more than just access to their robust data and reporting educational software platform - it means we have a team dedicated to our success and to building social emotional learning metrics that move the needle toward positive student outcomes. This partnership includes ongoing support, training and access to a group of innovative schools and educators. 

We need your support to make this a reality. 

  • Thankfully, Ed Rush kicked off our campaign with a $3,000 gift.

  • Then we received $2,000 from an anonymous donor.

  • Thank you to John Sanders Foundation for an additional $5,000

  • Mary Griffith was gracious enough to send $3,000, thank you. 

  • At the end of last week a local foundation agreed to send us a check.

We only have $36,000 more to raise by June 15th, 2018. If you are willing to help with any amount either email, call, or pay with credit card below. Together, we can change the lives of underserved youth. or 619-630-0610

So Why is the AltSchool Platform So Cool? 

This platform was co-created by educators and engineers specifically designed to aid in the delivery, tracking, and control of content. As an additional transparency feature, multiple users - Students, parents and teachers - are able to interact with the platform. Sisu researched building this platform on our own and discovered the cost exceeded $800K. Here is what it the AltSchool platform does from their website:

Both students and teachers are able to interact with the platform to impact the student's learning. 


This provides a valuable resource for the teacher and agency for the student.  

It is important to know how a student is progressing in real-time. By monitoring progress the teacher and student are both able to make adjustments, dive deeper, and stay the course throughout the learning process.  

Just monitoring progress is not enough. This platform allows for meaningful feedback to the student and teacher. When you are able to give that feedback quickly you dramatically increase the impact on the learning experience and success. 

Part of what makes Sisu unique is our approach to precision-based learning; each student is given the opportunity to personalize learning. From networking skills and cooking lessons, to chemistry and english, our students will have the ability to guide what and how they learn.   

As a boarding school, our students do not go home at night. But, we can still help keep the parents in the loop. With options for various parent viewing portals we are able to share the important progress their students are making on a weekly basis. 

This software is important for our school and for our students in measuring their growth as they move through our program.
