As a non-profit educational service provider, Rêve Academy works with schools to close the achievement gap. By engaging kids both in and out of the classroom, we reach hundreds of underserved students a year.

How do our partnerships work?

In the classroom

We train teachers to use our technical and professional
skills curriculum, which helps students to:

  • Build practical skills in business, technology, and design
  • Expand their communication skills

Beyond the classroom

We offer paid internships in a cool, contemporary office space, so students are able to:

  • Deepen the technical and professional they learned in the classroom
  • Work with real clients, real deadlines, and real stakes
  • Learn how to thrive in a professional environment

Do teachers recommend us?

“Absolutely.”

 

It’s been a great opportunity for the students. I think what it does is give them resources to see beyond high school and think about their future careers. It broadens their world beyond their neighborhood. They’re changing the way they think, even beyond the classroom.

 

—Brianne, high school teacher

“Definitely.”

 

There are all these perks that go with it—you get something useful like web design skills, and the option of having kids become interns at the end of the program just sounded awesome. Everybody wants to have a job skill, so the kids are really excited about it.

 

—Suzanne, high school teacher

“Give it a shot.”

 

Reve Academy has been quick to offer me support. Students find the online learning system easy to use, and they like how they can go at their own pace. In terms of impact, I have seen a great deal. Students’ professional and digital literacy skills have improved.

 

—Randall, high school teacher
