About Uncharted Learning
Just as our programs teach students how to identify a problem and create a solution, Uncharted Learning’s inception story is central to that principle too.
We took note of what our children were being taught alongside the backdrop of a changing 21st century. Today’s growing economy craves young professionals with innovative ideas and the skills to make things happen. We saw an opportunity in our community to teach students the necessary skills to thrive in today’s rapidly-changing world.
So, we went for it.
We saw first hand, the power of partnership between a community and a school district. We drew from our own experience as entrepreneurs and studied business incubators and programs aimed at fostering soft skills in education. We leaned on business leaders to help for support, and worked with District leaders to bring this to life. We created curriculum and added professional development to encourage teacher empowerment. We wrote, we sketched, we built, and together, we eventually launched the very first INCubatoredu program at Barrington High School in Barrington, IL in 2013.
