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 saw firsthand 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 for in our community - to teach students the necessary skills to create their own business in today’s rapidly-changing world.
So, we went for it.
We bent the ears of several local entrepreneurs and community stakeholders. We proposed “what if” scenarios to teachers, admin, and school district officials. 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. We created curriculum and added professional development to encourage teacher empowerment. We wrote, we sketched, we built, and we eventually launched our very first INCubatoredu program at Barrington High School in Barrington, IL in 2013.
